live() does not work with closest()

I have a tablesorter where the first column contains a checkbox.

This works:

$('table.tablesorter tbody td:first-child').live('click', function(e){alert('clicked')});

This doesn't work:

$('table.tablesorter tbody td:first-child :checkbox').closest('td').live('click', function(e){alert('clicked')});

"Live events currently only work when used against a selector."

This is because when the event bubbles up to the document, the selector alone is used to determine whether there is a match. You can't use any chain filters like

after the selector.
