It started to gain a little traction from commentator Rachel Maddow earlier in the week with issue three now making an appearance. With more of the same.

TPMMuckracker has got Tea Party commentary who deny any involvement with the existence of the comic with Shelby Blakely of the Patriot Journal saying;
