BTW supporters, no one is suggesting he started the tea party,
Your right, but he started the ##SNIPPED## party which is a sexual innuendo...How is this acceptable?
The current Tea Party movement initially came up with the 'clever' idea of sending Tea bags to members of Congress. It was in their initial rallys that they started referring to this act of sending their representatives boxes of tea bags as 'TEA#snip#"":
The first big day for this movement was Tax Day, April 15. And organizers had a gimmick. They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office.
Shuster went on to say that Fox News personalities were “looking forward to an up-close-and-personal taste of tea#snip#".”

Good information! Thanks for posting it. However, I highly doubt those two people in the photos had any clue as to the darker alternative meaning of the "term". You still get a point from me. It was however the anti tea party bunch that ran with it and made it the running gag for months on end.
