Red state tea parties

Remember Alice's Adventures in Wonderland? In one part it told the story of the Mad Hatter's tea party. It also included the Red Queen, who could believe six impossible things before breakfast.

I always wondered why the states that typically vote for Republicans were called "red states". They are also the states where the the tea party movement seems to be strongest. Is there a deep relationship between these states and wonderland?
