'Tea party' becomes just plain tea party -- what should we do with the quotes?

The high sheriffs of The Washington Post Stylebook have decreed: The Post will no longer use quotation marks when referring to the tea party. So where should that extra pair of quotation marks go? We're looking for a phrase or initiative related to Washington government and politics that most deserves quotation marks. Something like "political science" or "stimulus package"? Leave your suggestions in the comments.
