Messing with kids' heads - what the Right is good at

Do you remember the monstrosity that is Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!, a blatant Republican propaganda disguised as a children's book? I have linked to some good reviews here and here.

Well, another one came out, just as bad: Help! Mom! Hollywood's in My Hamper!

All those marginal types that the Right loves to portray as representative of the Democrats, like Michael Moore, Barbra Streisand, Susan Sarandon....hey, where is Ward Churchill?

But there is now one that is even more insidious: Why Mommy Is a Democrat (it is not on Amazon yet, if it is not an Internet hoax to begin with) that masquerades as a kids' book positive of Democrats, yet it seems to be a plant from the Right. The "values" portrayed in there are not liberal, but the straw-men that the Rightists always put up as being liberal. It is awful!

Nick Gillespie from The Left also thinks it is a plant. So does Headmistress, zookeeper whose political affiliation I did not catch.

Only the American Digest from The Right thinks it is serious - well, when did the Right ever have a sense of humor?
