Bah, humbug. That was in response to a right wing email
that was going around
asking people to send tea bags to Pres. Obama to represent a
modern "Boston Tea
Party" movement against taxation.

One of my very conservative friends sent it to me a month or
so ago.
I consigned it to the trash.

I just read the article. Seems to me it's a tempest in a
teapot....

The sentence above was not found in the cite.

I thought the subject was about something else. As I found out, much to
my surprise, "teabag" is a verb. I can't tell you what it means,
because this is a family newsgroup.

I'm betting it's not one with which sf is familiar, even though it's
probably happening within a quarter-mile of where she is right now.

Dan...are you sure you are in the right group? I have read comments
here that would make a 60 year old hooker blush.

In which dictionary? Oxford says it's a noun, and is written "tea bag" (two
words).

Are you saying that a teabag is the little sibling of a douchebag?

From reading the article, and reading a bit between
the lines, he apparently sent loose tea, not a tea bag.
Still there was an over-reaction, but loose tea is
not as obviously innocuous as a tea bag would be.
Dried substance in an envelope sent to a member of congress
is exactly how the anthrax incident occurred.
