They say that the Internet is a dangerous place for children and the faint of heart. I am beginning to believe it.
O.K., I need a little help here. I was poking around on the Internet and clicked an ad for a book entitled Why Mommy is a Democrat; by the way, here is the link – http://littledemocrats.net/index.html. I included the link so that you would not think that I was making this up.
My problem is that I cannot tell if this book is for real, or the whole thing is some sort of The Onion style parody. The main page could be interpreted either way. As I went deeper into the site, I began to sense that this is either a very clever joke, or that Democrats are in need of serious counseling.
In the interest of digging deeper, I clicked on the review by the National Center for the Study of Childrenâ€™s Literature (yuk,yuk). There I found a very complimentary â€œreviewâ€ that included such classic stupid lines as â€œâ€¦exemplifying abstract beliefs like tolerance and accessible health care.â€ Calling health care an abstract belief is right up there with â€œPoverty is Violence.â€ This is clearly beyond serious, so I suspect a joke is being played.
Though I do think it is very clever, the author did take a kind of short cut by taking all virtues Republican and calling them Democrat. While this is in fact what Democrat propagandists do, it is a bit formulaic for a great parody.
It occurred to me that Republicans could take this parody and publish it as a real childrenâ€™s book, only reverse the roles! At least it would be more or less accurate; but then, itâ€™s not the nature of Republicans to abuse children by robbing them of their childhood by indoctrinating them in partisan politics before age five. They generally leave that sort of â€œeducationâ€ to the Democrats and National Socialists.
Anyway, if any of you find out for sure, one way or the other, let me know. Thanks.
