Maddow totally ruins teabagging joke

itemprop

Yesterday we made a couple jokes about the silly Republicans who continue to rally around their really clever idea to tea bag members of Congress to show their distaste for the economic policies recently enacted. Unfortunately they don't seem to understand what teabagging means.

Well, it was funny for a day. Then MSNBC's Rachel Maddow got her snarky little hands on it and beat the joke so hard that it was actually painful to watch the nonstop tea bag jokes. Maybe Maddow doesn't realize that most people got the joke the first time. No need to repeat it 100 times.

Watch her painfully long tea bag segment with Air America's Ana Marie Cox below.
