The current tea party movement was triggered in part by impassioned comments by CNBC reporter Rick Santelli on the latest bailout in February. These sparks light the wildfire which grew into the April 15 parties. The United States has had a long history of grass roots movements protesting high taxes and other encroachments by government on fundamental liberties. The most famous tea party was the Boston Tea Party in 1773 where the colonists destroyed loads of tea rather than pay the high taxes on the beverage of choice in that time, tea. This protest eventually leads to the British Parliament's repeal of the unpopular tax.
The term teabagging came from a liberal, of course another classless loon.
