Successfully Indoctrinate Your Children for Just $8

THIS is one of the scariest things I have seen in a while. Almost made me "throw up in my mouth a little" as Ciggy would say. ;)

HERE are some sample pages from this book. Notice what the Mommy is keeping her little rodents safe from... (and not to be petty, but what crappy illustration!)

"Why Mommy is a Democrat brings to life the core values of the Democratic Party in ways that young children will understand and thoroughly enjoy. Using plain and non-judgmental language, along with warm and whimsical illustrations, this colorful 28 page paperback depicts the Democratic principals of fairness, tolerance, peace and concern for the well-being of others. It's a great way for parents to gently communicate their commitment to these principals and explain their support for the party.
Why Mommy is a Democrat may look like a traditional children's book, but it definitely isn't just for children. With numerous subtle (and not so subtle) satirical swipes at the Bush Administration and the Republican Party, Why Mommy will appeal to Democrats of all ages!
Finally, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Democratic candidates and party organizations, so your purchase will help make an immediate difference." (source)

You know what kept popping into my head as I read this (other than the urge to vomit)? Tokyo Rose. On some talk radio show that I was listening to in the car yesterday they were outlining Tokyo Rose's three-fold message:
1) The President was a liar
2) The War was started on a lie
3) We were going to lose the war.

Sound familiar...?
