Why? That little tea bag that appears in (some iterations of) the magazine’s logo (see the top left corner on TPR’s home page). Writes Sager: “The Tea Party is full of people who walked around calling themselves teabaggers a few years ago … only to freak out when the media kindly pointed out exactly what ‘teabagging’ was…[T]here are enough people IN the party now who have distanced themselves from the reference that this should be your first clue.” Also? To Sager’s eye, “everything about this ‘magazine’ is just a tad too close to what a liberal wants to read in a Tea Party magazine.”

And…a CPAC-goer?
