The answer is no. In fact people LOVED this joke. I did not. I thought it was downright disrespectful. Now understand that the tea bag joke was not intended. Writer Ed Brubaker even said, " I don't know who did it, probably someone who thought it was funny. I didn't think think so, personally". Oh, I'm sure you had a laugh riot when you read the joke ASM#595 Mr.Brubaker.
If I was an editor at Marvel Comics I would say to leave any political jokes out of comic books, regardless if you're Republican or Democratic, because you're going to offend someone and it makes reading comic books less fun.
