And you thought their tri-corner hats were old fashioned. Now the Tea Party has joined the print media! Their new magazine is called the Tea Party Review and it premieres this month. Of course, the Tea Party is a bunch of separate groups that share some common goals, but without any leading entity it will be difficult and seems almost presumptuous for just one magazine to represent all of them. Still, this is probably how people felt when Cat Fancy promised to speak for all cat fanciers out there (and that totally worked out fine.)
The official website doesn’t link to, or mention any specific Tea Party group. And the press release promises that the staff reflects “the diversity of the movement, including individuals from all over the country incorporating a wide variety of backgrounds.” So it looks like they’re definitely going for an all inclusive type deal. It’ll be interesting to see if the disparate Tea Partiers can unite behind one media force. If they can do that, uniting behind one national presidential candidate shouldn’t be hard at all.
But enough of that serious talk. What’s in the damn thing? Besides, of course, pictures of people holding flags to symbolize their patriotism while wearing baseball caps to symbolize that they are just like you and me. Lets take a look!
