or not. Oxford University Press has decided that a runner up for their 'Oxford Word of the Year' under politics and current events would be 'teabagger.'
How innovative...how bold...how Avant-garde!
How utterly stupid! Anybody who has followed the news about the Tea Party protests knows exactly what that utterly disgusting and pornographic the term means, but yet those esteemed scholars and editors at Oxford University seem to think that it means otherwise, that it is the definition of those folks that oppose Obama's economic policies.
But that would come to no surprise to anyone who has not drank the Kool-Aid Obama serves up on a daily basis. What it does do is reinforces the conservative view of most of those in scholastic endeavors as being liberal in their views, and rightfully so.
Oxford University Press should know better. That was a cheap, political shot that denigrates those of us that reject the policies of the current administration.
If you wish to let Oxford Press know what you think, go to their blog or contact them directly at their corporate office.
Might I suggest that when contacting them via snail mail at their corporate office, you include a tea bag.
