Something tells me Clinton has been acquainted with this term loooooong before the tea party movement. From Politico:
“The point I want to make is: Just pass the bill, even if it’s not exactly what you want,” Clinton told Democrats. “When you try and fail, the other guys write history.”
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said Clinton described the ongoing tea party protests against the Democratic agenda as a sign their party was making progress.
Whitehouse quoted Clinton arguing: “The reason the tea-baggers are so inflamed is because we are winning.”
Clinton using that term is grosser than if my grandmother used it.
He seriously said: “The reason the tea-baggers are so inflamed …” Dude, this stuff WRITES ITSELF.
