Democrats Wish They Controlled The House, Just Like Mommy

The illustrations in Jeremy Zilber's Why Mommy Is A Democrat are an adorable little family of squirrels, but they might as well be fish in a barrel:
Democrats make sure we all share our toys, just like Mommy does.

Democrats make sure we are always safe, just like Mommy does.

Democrats make sure children can go to school, just like Mommy does.

I presume that Democrats are incensed and opposed to the Bush Administration's unprecedented pursuit of unchecked executive power, and that all those "make sures" are not intended to be as authoritarian as they sound. Where's the freakin' daddy in all this, and where's the page about Democrats making sure parents can earn a living AND take cae of their families?

Zilber's only consolation--though it's one that won't help Why Mommy's sales--is that the "competition," Help, Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed is somehow even more humorless and doctrinaire. Better to leave the satire to The Daily Show and brainwashing children to the parents.

I am so writing the Republican version of that!

I thought brainwashing was the video game industry's role

How about:

Republicans work to so their children can afford private school, just like Daddy does.

[The above comment in no way reflects my political views one way or another.]

Republican version? What, like:

Republicans make sure they take away all your toys and give them to their friends who already have, like, a million toys.

Republicans make sure to perpetuate the "monster under the bed" story so they can tell you only they can make you safe.

Republicans make sure you can go to school so they can push their non-science beliefs on you.

Yet another reason why politics is moronic. A pox on both your houses!

Just. Wow. I think this could open up a whole new line of classic books remade in each party's ideology. I can't wait to read to my kid, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear what do you see"? "I see an illegal crossing the border in front of me"...

That's funny!!

I always get a kick at how Dem's and Repub's always claim one is smarter than the other.
They're both the same in my book, they just drive different cars.

Can somebody just write a book about how stupid this two-party system is?

There's actually another in the series coming out. It's about a little squirrel that doesn't get picked first for the kickball team, so he decides to pick up his books and go start his own school. The Lieberman campaign hopes to have this one on the shelves soon.
