“It’s Hard to Talk When You’re Teabagging”

Teabagging jokes — they’re all the rage.

The double entendres seem to have started with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and continued with her colleague David Shuster.

Gergen: “They still haven’t found their voice, Anderson. This happens to a minority party after it’s lost a couple of bad elections, but they’re searching for their voice.”

Cooper: “It’s hard to talk when you’re teabagging.”
