... Brown also dropped a reference to "tea baggers" on "Hardball" in reference to Tea Partiers.I don't believe Clifford Sterling's claim that no offense was intended. You can't view the comments section in most American newspapers - much less lefty sites like KOS and the Huffington Post -- without seeing the Teabagger slur over and over. Lefties who use this slur know what they are doing.
Uh-oh. TPers find that term offensive, and for those of you wondering why, look here to find out. It ain't about the Lipton.
"Team" Brown spokesperson Sterling Clifford told us: "No offense was intended."
I haven't found any report on Brown's slur in the Sacramento Bee, the LA Times, the San Diego Union, or any paper besides the SF Chronicle.
