An absolutely beautiful thing happened on Sunday: Tucker Carlson asked Katrina vanden Heuvel to stop saying "Teabaggers."
Appearing on ABC's "This Week," the perilously liberal editor of the perilously liberal "The Nation" magazine seemed on a mission to say "Teabaggers" more in a twenty minute television segment than anybody not affiliated with the perilously liberal MSNBC.
Apparently getting offended by the term, the Daily Caller's Carlson finally said, "Katrina, will you stop with the Teabaggers thing?" (video embedded below the fold with partial transcript, relevant section at 5:40):
KATRINA VANDEN HEUVEL, THE NATION: But George, seriously, the messaging out of the White House is clicking into gear. The idea of a responsibility tax on these banks which have cost people jobs, homes. I think it's a test for the Teabaggers moving forward, too. Which side are they on? Are they on the side of the people as they claim? Or are they on...
TUCKER CARLSON, THE DAILY CALLER: Katrina, will you stop with the Teabaggers thing? I mean, what is a Teabagger? That's such a stupid, I mean, come on.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if every time a liberal media member used that disgusting term on television somebody would ask him or her not to?
