In the latest issue of National Review, Jay Nordlinger wonders whether conservatives should embrace the term "teabagger" as "kind of a conservative N-word: to be used in the family, but radioactive outside the family." In the end, he decides against it and in favor of using the more neutral terms "tea partier" and "tea-party patriots." But for those still curious why he would care to change the catchy moniker, he provide Wikipedia's explanation, which actually taught us something (top of the head?!?). [TPM]
