      (ah, there I go again, antagonizing them with "Baggers", now when they shoot somebody it will be your fault/collective guilt for not hiding this comment.)

      The Baggers better get themselves to Boston:

      Two years later, a monument honoring Attucks was erected on Boston Common. It is over 25 feet high and a little over 10 feet wide. The bas-relief (raised portion on the face of the main part of the monument) portrays the Boston Massacre, with Attucks lying in the foreground. Under the scene is the date, March 5, 1770. Above the bas-relief stands a female figure, Free America. With her left hand, she clasps a flag about to be unfurled, and in her right hand, she holds the broken chain of oppression. Beneath her right foot, she crushes the royal crown of England, which lies torn and twisted on the ground. At the left of the figure, clinging to the edge of the base, is an eagle. Thirteen stars are cut into one of the faces of the monument. Beneath these stars in raised letters are the names of the five men who were killed that day: Crispus Attucks, Samuel Gray, James Caldwell, Samuel Maverick, and Patrick Carr.

      from the Crispus Attucks wiki..

        of using the "bagger" term although I am trying to be a kinder gentler blogger in 2011.

          a political parody.

          Over at First Draft Athenae calls them teawads.
          I've seen teahadists, too.

          I prefer, actually, tea pottiers. As in, pottier than average.
