Tea-Bagging And The Generations

A reader writes:

I'm a 52-year-old woman. Straight, married. I didn't know what "teabagging" was, either, but as soon as I heard Rachel chuckling over it, and read your recent comments regarding it, I googled. And learned. And I laughed, too, because I didn't know the act had a NAME. "Teabagging" is ... well, perfect. I'm still laughing.

Given my own generational ignorance on the subject, I suppose I can forgive Scott Johnson for not knowing what the word implies, either. But why in the world would he -- as a blogger putting his thoughts out for the whole world to see, for goodness sakes -- not google the term?

I really worry about the GOP's seeming lack of brains and common sense, regardless of generation.

What about their sense of humor?
