A sad attempt by the tea party members, who used to call themselves teabaggers (a name that fell out of favor when they found out the other popular meaning of the word) not to be the butt of their own joke anymore. The term was popularized by Michelle Malkint; it usually refers to a politician who flees his home state to avoid a quorum, preventing an unwanted legislation from being passed.
A: ...so he moved to another state to stop the law from passing.
B: What a fleabagger.
A: still better than a teabagger.
B True. True.
