Having a Ball

Ok, I have to admit; this one has me a bit torn. One the one hand, the mockery of a poorly thought out protest staged by ill-informed people amuses me greatly... but a national news outlet resorting to multiple dick jokes in one segment makes me sad:

"For most Americans, Wednesday, April 15th will be Tax Day, but, in our fouth story tonight, it's gonna be 'tea-bagging day' for the right wing and they are going nuts for it."
-MSNBC's David Shuster

Here's the full video:

Look, I really am all for making fun of jackasses, but there's a time and a place. If ever we needed journalists to be on the... um... ball, it's now. Maybe the sly double entendres should be left to the Stewarts, Colberts, Mahers and Wonkettes of the world, as opposed to the national news outlets and Time Magazine.
