It's Not Considered Propaganda When It's Done In Pastels

Not content with simply shoving religion down your children's throats? Why not add a pinch of politics to their social scarring! According to, "A slew of children's political books has crowded US booksellers' shelves as partisan authors peddle their opposing liberal and conservative beliefs to an audience that is much too young to vote." The most recent (and most heavily hyped) is Jeremy Zilber's Why Daddy is a Democrat, the sequel to his 2006 tome, Why Mommy is a Democrat. Hmn...sounds to me like Zilber needs to branch out a little. Democrats are supposed to be a progressive people, right?
