A Teabagging Christmas with John Waters

|

Former Reason intern Mike Riggs has a reliably amusing interview in the Washington City Paper with America's greatest pencil-mustached Baltimore patriot, John Waters. Distantly relevant political section:

Female trouble

WCP: Do you feel like you've been cheated, now that teabagging is back in style and you've been given none of the credit?

JW: I never feel like I've been cheated. I'm not a bitter person. I think I have a pretty nice life and I'm not angry about much. And the whole teabagging thing is glorious. What happened was, when the whole Republican teabagging thing started getting press, all the newscasters on liberal stations thought it was funny because it reminded them of Pecker. It brought a movie I'd made back into the news. I was thrilled.

WCP: Was there a boost in sales of Pecker?

JW: That I don't know, but there was certainly a boost in talk, and whenever there's a boost in talk, that usually translates to lots of things. It helps my spoken word thing. It helps overall. It's fame maintenance.
