(Newser) – Thirsty Tea Partiers will be glad to learn that Rush Limbaugh has a fruity new sideline. The conservative radio host has launched his own brand of iced tea, made just like his mom did and available in original and raspberry flavors (plus, diet versions!), reports the Palm Beach Post. The beverage, named Two If By Tea and being sold online by the 12-pack, represents the "traditional American values of capitalism and the pursuit of excellence," according to the tea's website. "Each bottle is designed to rise above the sameness and mediocrity that threatens our great nation."

"You are going to want to chug it and you are going to regret you didn't order more after you taste it," Limbaugh told his radio show listeners, saying the venture aims to demonstrate that businesses can still flourish under the current "oppressive regime." Plus, "Folks it is kickbutt." Limbaugh says a portion of the proceeds will go to the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation, which provides assistance to the children of service members killed in the line of duty. So do as his website urges: "Grab a 12-pack and join the fight to preserve the America we know and love."
