After weeks of rancorous internal debate, the Republican National Committee (RNC) passed a resolution renaming itself the Teapublican Party.

Although the cost of the change is estimated at close to $53 million, Chairman Reince Priebus said the Teapublican caucus in Congress will pass a special resolution to fund the change through cuts in the National School Lunch Program.

Other names were considered by the RNC (now TNC), including Nopublican, but Teapublican was felt to be more unifying. As part of its constitution, the TNC has added this preamble, which must be memorized by all Teapublicans if they intend to acquire lobbying positions with a military supplier or oil company after leaving Congress:

"We, the Teapublicans of the United States, in Order to destroy all Unions, diminish Social Justice, procure Domestic Handguns, provide for an electrified Border Fence, corrupt the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Lobbying to ourselves and our Inferiors, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Teapublican Party of America."

Priebus, of Greek descent, believes that U.S. salvation depends on its moving toward a Spartan society: "By having the most frightening military establishment in the world," said Priebus, "we are well on the way toward that goal. However, Congress must pass what I call the 'Parris Island Initiative,' in which 3,000 Marine Corps-designed training facilities are set up around the country. Young men would spend their teen years getting ready for the next dozen wars we have planned. We were going to recruit Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky to oversee the program, but we didn't want the boys turned into cannon fodder, so to speak, before they're armed and dangerous."

Heidi Fleiss, famed Hollywood Madam, is working with the TNC to set up 3,000 satellite facilities near each of the soon-to-be-launched Spartan-inspired training camps.
