Okay, so what the Hell is a member of the Tea Party CALLED? [View all]

It isn't a Party. It is a movement without real rules, so there has no official term.

If "Teabagger" is out, which was a term once used by many with no sexual connotation because it at least works as a names, then what simple fricking noun describes a self-styled member of the Tea Party?

We are looking for the ONE WORD, SINGULAR PROPER NOUN

"Tea Party Patriot" is about like wanting to be called, "Oz, the Great and Powerful."

And "Tea Partier" is two words. Again, bag that. You don't have a form of "party" in the singular designation of a member of the Party. That's like calling Czechs "Chzech Republicans." (Because the nation is called the Czech Republic.) Or calling Democrats "Democratic Partiers." (Just because Tea Party is a pun doesn't mean the rest of the world loses the word party)

So what is it? He is a Tea? Teaist? Tearian? A Teap? Teaper?

Added on Edit: Reading replies, the term seems to be "Teapartier" despite my objections to its clunkiness. Since that is the same number of letters as bagger it is a fair substitution and is what should be used. IMO.
