Wow – what a potty mouth:
Hamilton County Republican chairman Alex Triantafilou accuses Rep. Steve Driehaus of using ‘a vulgarity’ in a fundraising email, and is demanding an apology.
The vulgarity: “tea bagger.”
The Driehaus campaign calls the GOP release “nonsense” and says “no offense was intended.” Spokeswoman Melissa Wideman cites the Oxford American Dictionary definition of the term: “a person who protests President Obama’s tax policies and stimulus package, often through local demonstrations known as “Tea Party” protests (in allusion to the Boston Tea Party of 1773.”
Tea Bagger is a vulgarity? If that’s the case then the Tea Party people out protesting this week should be arrested for displays of public vulgarities:

This isn’t the first time I have talked about Triantafilou, the head of the Hamilton County Republicans. Last year Triantafilou decided to show what a real class act he is when he used a picture of a bald Arlen Specter to compare him to Dr. Evil. Of course Specter was bald in that picture because of his brain cancer.
Triantafilou is no authority on class, let alone what is a vulgarity and what isn’t. He’s just proving that the Tea Party is an extension of the GOP.
