"What's next for the Tea Party movement?"

"Will the movement fade and fizzle?"

"Will we succeed in pulling this country back from disaster?"

These are among the questions asked -- and presumably answered -- in the first issue of Tea Party Review, which describes itself as "the first national magazine for, by, and about the Tea Party movement."

The publication will be rolled out Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference scheduled in Washington.

"We need a forum for Tea Partiers to come together, to trade ideas, to resolve disputes, to find out what other activists are doing and thinking," an announcement on the magazine's website reads. "A place to develop plans for taking our country back from the elitist, arrogant, obnoxious, corrupt members of the Washington establishment and their friends in Hollywood, the news media, faculty lounges, and on Wall Street."

The inaugural issue includes articles titled "What the Left Will Never Understand About the Tea Party," "A Physician on ObamaCare and What To do About It," and "The Year of the Black Conservative."

A year's subscription runs $34.95.

The monthly magazine will be put out by Higher Standard Publishers, a firm devoted to "celebrating our Christian and conservative heritage in America," according to its website.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.

Todd, I'll answer you. We're afraid of uneducated, unthinking people. We're afraid that you are weak and easily manipulated, and never seek answers to your questions. We're afraid of people who do not read, do not research, and accept as fact the rantings of lesser intellects. Anyone can hurl criticism, but bring us answers...that's where you're needed. If you have something constructive to bring to the table, then do it. Stop being a parrot for idiocy.

I do not mix theology and politics, but more power to them on constitutionally-limited government and fiscal sustainability.

Will Palin put gun sights on some of pages in this magazine, and/or write " RELOAD" and use the magazine to teach us some history like how and why the USA lost the space race, or how the satellite sputnik caused the end of the USSR, and she could write articles on how to kill and dress a reindeer 2 weeks before Christmas ( reindeer aka caribou), or how North Korea became our ally, or instructional tips on how to write notes on the palm of your hand, ETC.

Those who were born during the depression and lived during World War II believe
in living within their means and believe that our State and Federal Goverment
should also live within their means. Our parents and Grandparents did it. Thank
goodness for Dick Armey and the Tea Party. We need to get back to sanity.

Well said glasses60.. After reading some of the rants here worrying about a magazine or Palin I wonder how many folks really are subject to letting someone else make decisions for them. The whole purpose of information is to be able to make an informed decision, and one really needs to get info from both perspectives, then be your own person. Stand for SOMETHING for petes sake.

You can start a magazine, but it said nothing about the amount of subscribers. I suspect a lot of trees will be spared an early demise.

Is this just Christian right jumping on band wagon. As far as I am concerned Taxed Enough Already has nothing to do with religion.

There are many Jews who are active Tea Partiers, myself included, who would appreciate the term "Judeo-Christian" when descriptions of "Christian" values and ideals are discussed.

This country was not built on Christian values but was built on RELIGIOUS values. There is no mention of Christ in the constitution, Bill of Rights, or any other early papers. Our early formers of this country were as political as the politicians of today and had more sense than to disparage others. God is on buildings ect. but not Jesus. There is one comment here that says he does not mix theology and politics. How can you not mix them if you know history and need a value system in your country? Lets just use the term religious values. I am not Jewishbut I understand your thinking.

How do Y'all suppose the Dems got into Congress in the first place? They got there because the Republicans had screwed things up practically beyond repair, and got out and voted. If it had been Presidential election time he would have been gone too. Since things had improved by the last election, Dems saw no urgency to get out to vote. You can tell by the # of dumb, wild eyed, frantic Republican emails circulating, and no Dem emails, that Dems really don't care about politics as long as things are going well.

You are just mad because the republicans won the elections by a landslide. Wait until 2012 and you can really cry.

I would like to see a thoroughgoing discussion of each of the elements of the Constitution and Bill of Rights and how they might be best applied to today's reality. Thank you for considering my comments.
