Genius!

Colbert is the edgiest dude on TV since the first few shows on SNL, lo, so many eons ago. His show can be monotonous, but when he scores, he scores BIG!

If I were Trump, I'd call his bluff. There's nothing to lose, because you know Colbert wouldn't really whip out his nuggets on public.

Or would he?

Y'know, I'm not sure about that.

It seems to me that they two men are very similar in that they both live in kayfabe, Colbert playing a character named Colbert, Trump playing a character named Trump. Don't forget that Trump's Yoda is his buddy Vince McMahon, who played a character named Mr. McMahon in his own universe. Trump even played a character named Trump in that universe. Or maybe he was playing a character named Trump playing a character named Trump. I used to think he was a real-world douchebag, but I'm starting to think that he's the ultimate "meta" genius, just playing the part of a douchebag in an elaborate game of street theater and never breaking character.

Awesome. Too bad that the mainstream media doesn't have the balls (pardon the pun) to take a cue from this and routinely call Trump out on his carnival barking antics.

FLAWLESS VICTORY. I lol'd.

I got an email from one of my Tea Party wingnut uncles this morning, expressing outrage over this. "What happened to decency? What's wrong with you liberals?" To which I responded, "What happened to decency when a bloviating sh*tgargler tries to effectively blackmail the president in exchange for yet another 15 minutes in the spotlight?"

Colbert may have made a literal teabagging joke, but Trump's stunt is far, far more offensive.

The impression I've gotten so far is that the toothless media is treating this as an actual story with two sides. You know, the whole "even retards have equal weight" crap that has legitimized the birther and other movements. It wasn't always like this. The press used to ignore the Birchers of the world. Now they're given center stage and treated as though they are just as valid as a sitting president.

Oh, you better believe I lol'd.

And this is an interesting conundrum:

Which is bigger? Trump's gaping maw or Colbert's brass swingers?

It's kind of like that whole irresistible force/immovable object thought experiment.

I wonder, if they attempted it, would they warp spacetime? Would all neutrinos suddenly be the size of cat heads? Would Utah become a blue state?

I thought the segment where he walked around the studio "asking questions" was a pretty awesome. He basically trashed Fox News.

Colbert: "Why does (Fox News contributor) Peter Johnson, Jr. have a name that's three euphemisms for 'penis'?"

Infobahn: jj325: That bit was genius. Colbert should break The Daily Show Emmy streak next year based solely on this

One could hope, but sometimes I think Emmy voters think they are getting two-for-one when they vote TDS.


When they were talking about giving Colbert his own show, I thought it'd be far better to extend TDS by 30 minutes (to get rid of what has now become 5-7 minutes of commercials, "Jon 'n' Stephe's Fun-Time Banter-Talk" and Colbert's [admittedly kind of funny] opening). Give Colbert The Word and another segment or two ("Better Know a District" is amazing every time) and keep the whole thing under the TDS banner.

Colbert is less funny when he has to play both sides of his own game. It's limiting and probably a bit frustrating for him to have to play Papa Bear all the time, which is why more and more he's dropping character. If Stewart was his straight man for 20-30 minutes a day, I think he'd have an easier time.

And TDS would never have to worry about an Emmy-less year until Stewart retired.

That was the very first Tea Party protest, in late February, 2009. Look closely at the lower right corners of those two signs in that photo, at the small handwritten text. As the photographer who took that photo noted on his blog, that was the Free Republic cadre of protestors. The thing is, mere days before that very protest, on February 20, 2009, a thread was started on Free Republic entitled "Operation Teabag (Send a teabag to your representative!)" and it's still there!

Read it for yourself. These are the same people who made and/or held those signs! Read along with me:

The thread was started on Feb. 20, 2009, at 7:54:01 AM. Not even 1½ minutes later, the second comment in that thread was: "I would suggest a different name." Obviously, this person knew what that term meant, and tried to warn them about it!

Not 1¾ minutes after that, the fourth comment: "I think Barney Frank would welcome a good tea bag." ← Barney Frank. Really. Obviously this person "gets" the innuendo.

A mere ¼ minute later, very next comment: "While it is the historical home of the original tea-related protest, Operation Teabag means something much, much different in Barney Frank's district." ← Yes, another Freeper who gets the innuendo.

One second after that second "Barney Frank" innuendo, the sixth comment is someone else saying, "Definitely change the name." Yet another warning as to its innuendo meaning!

Got that? Just 2½ minutes in, and already out of a mere ½ dozen comments, four (a ²/3 supermajority ― enough to block filibuster in the U.S. Senate, override a Presidential Veto or send a Constitutional Amendment to the States for ratification, or the number needed by the RNC and DNC chairs to pretend to hear to implement key rules change and symbolic platform language respectively!) are directly about that term's sexual innuendo! ½ of those specifically advised to change it! They were warned about this by their own people!

Read the whole thread! Much of it is like this! Comment #11 said, "The Barney Frank jokes just write themselves," and Comment #12 is from the person who started the thread and who came up with the idea of "Operation: Teabag," replying to that one, saying, "Heh heh heh, indeed"! So there's no way that that person didn't know about this! That's still not even six minutes (¹/10th of an hour) into the thread's existence yet!

Comment #13 was removed by the moderator!

But wait, it gets worse!

#14, the very next comment after the removed #13: "For such modern crass imagery the name gives, there's something keenly impotent when comparing the original Boston Tea Party to sending little bags of tea to one's representative. The statement to me would be one of a nation castrated, unable to offer any attempt at freedom other than using the meekest of symbolism."

Yeah. Try to make the case that they didn't know what the term meant. Remember, this was before the Tea Party protests, before those signs were made, let alone carried!

#18 shows this photo:

Only about ¼ of an hour has passed since the thread started before that appeared (consider the time it takes to find specific photos on the Internet, and re-host them at TinyPic for use in forums)!

Very next comment (#19) quotes #2's advice for another name, and adds, "Yeah, so would I."

#23: "So, seriously, what percentage of the people viewing this thread do you think aren't getting the sick, and incredibly funny joke here?"

#24 (Reply to #2): "SNICKER! | Drag across their forehead."

#25 (Reply to #23): "69%" ← (Who here does not know what that number signifies WRT [mainly gay] sexual innuendo?)

#28 (Reply to #25):
i41.tinypic.com
Caption: "Ba Dum Tish!"
(Yeah, this person knows what "69" means!)

#30: "This is a good idea but needs some tweaking. I suggest sending a bag of pistachios and calling it Operation Nut Sack." ← (Uhm, yeah. Tell me this person doesn't "get" what "teabagging" means!)

#33 (Reply to #2): (Link to a YouTube video [http://youtube.com/watch?v=0FeciSYZJWI] of "teabagging" in the Halo computer game!)

#34 (Reply to #2): "LOL! I came here just to say that! | Although, that might be well deserved in their cases too!" (Another hint of keeping this term to insult their opponents.)

#35 (Reply to #30): "LOL!" (Reminder: #30 made the "Operation Nut Sack" joke.)

#37: "I suggest a third political party with a different name for it (I'm drawing blank for the moment) with the Teabag as it's symbol?" (the first suggestion of the TEA PARTY ITSELF!! AFTER so many posts about the innuendo!)

#38: "Operation Loose Tea? LOL!"

#39: (Another YouTube video of video game teabagging [http://youtube.com/watch?v=3QAyEFnCqgs], in City of Heroes)

#41 (Reply to #23's asking who doesn't get the sick joke): "Me, and I think I'm okay with that." (So far only ONE Freeper has admitted ignorance!)

#42 (Reply to #41): "Yeah, in this case, ignorance is bliss. For the rest of us cursed with the image conjured up by these words, a quick snicker is our only consolation prize."

#48: 'Yup. | And we'll start a "Have you teabagged you representative yet?" thread where we post our teabagging exploits. | I love where this is going.' ← (That one pretty much spells it out: using the name deliberately and explicitly, knowing about its innuendo, but aiming it at their opposition!)

#49: "Operation Teabag | BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

#50 (Reply to #2): "nah... i like it... | roflmao"

(Next page)

#51 (Reply to #49): (TinyURL to .gif image of NSFW teabagger icon [I won't embed it here. Click if you want.])

#54 (Reply to #4 which was the first Barney Frank comment): "Well, He and the Congress have been Teabagging us for a while now."

#55 (Reply to #33's Halo teabagging YT vid): "I had to stop that video after about 15 seconds. I'm laughing and wheezing and crying and making a complete ass of myself at work. | Not helping me create the illusion that I'm working."

#56: "My representative is Roscoe Bartlett. He would probably just take the teabags and pass them on to Nazi Pelosi."

#57 (same person #56, Reply to #41's ignorance): "I looked it up on Urban Dictionary. You may want to stay ignorant with this one."

#58 (same person #56 & 57, Reply to own #56 [remember, s/he just looked it up on Urban Dictionary): "Unintentionally funny, now that I get the ulterior meaning."

#59 (Reply to #33's Halo YT vid): "W.A.H."

So, you see, the Freepers who started the Tea Party in that thread, chose that name deliberately after having been warned by their own about its innuendo, thinking that the innuendo would be applied to their enemies instead of themselves!

This was about two months before Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow used it on them!

I admire Jon Stewart and am a big fan of his, but on this matter he was wrong when he chewed out Maddow: "Teabagger" is fair game to use against them, because after all, they knowingly used the term themselves, thinking that it would only be used against their enemies! We have this by their own words on their own Free Republic, in posts hard-dated months before the term was ever used against them, and days before the Tea Party launched its first protest where they carried that sign!

dickfreckle: skullkrusher: still not blackmail

I did say "effectively" blackmail. Trump thinks he has cornered Obama into an impossible position. That he's pulling a reverse (offering instead of demanding money) doesn't change what this is.


that's pretty much the only similarity between this and blackmail.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't doesn't make something blackmail
