Ann Coulter Serves Her "Tea" With Homophobic Innuendo

April 22, 2009
In her most recent syndicated column entitled "Obama's recipe for change not my cup of tea," Ann Coulter once again takes the low road.  In the column, which has been widely published across conservative media, she uses Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA) to make a joke with a homophobic subtext: one is calling the tea parties "tea bagging" -- except Olbermann and Maddow. Republicans call them "tea parties."

But if the Republicans were calling them "tea bagging parties," the MSNBC hosts would have a fantastically hilarious segment for viewers in San Francisco and in the West Village and not anyplace else in the rest of the country. On the other hand, they're not called "tea-bagging parties." (That of course refers to the cocktail hour at Barney Frank's condo in Georgetown.)

This is a needless jab at Congressman Frank whose mention in her piece is totally unrelated to the content of her column. h/t to Media Matters for America.
