"Teanami” (tea party + tsunami election) is a name used in September-October 2010 for a predicted tea party victory in the November 2010 midterm elections. “Teanami” has been cited in print since at least September 17, 2010 and was used by conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh on his October 20, 2010 show.
“Tsunami election” is another name for the older term, “(tidal) wave election.”

November 2nd: Obama’s Katrina
October 20, 2010
RUSH: (...) Now, if the experts are saying—there are a lot of them, by the way, from Dick Morris to Charlie Cook to Rasmussen, there’s a bunch of them—if they are saying that there are at least 100 seats in play, then pretty much you have to conclude that there aren’t any safe seats, if a hundred seats are in play? I mean there are some safe seats, but a hundred, this is huge. If 70 to 100 seats change hands, that is a Teanami. That is Obama’s Katrina. What the Tea Party’s doing is making every election about ideology, which is what has to happen
