Things that go Bump in the Night

Just when you thought the level of political discourse in this country couldn't get any lower, along comes a book that tries drag children into the whole red vs. blue debate. Help! Mom! There are Liberals Under My Bed is the story of two brothers, Tommy and Lou, whose dreams of lemonade stand entrepreneurship are quashed by Senators Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton. The cover art is absolutely priceless. I'm surprised its taken this long for this book to be published, after all, Daddy's Roommate came out (pun intended) 14 years ago.

I haven't read Daddy's Roommate, but I think the title kind of trivializes gay relationships. Why should a gay person have to describe his partner as a roommate? I don't know of too many people who refer to their father's wife as his roommate.

Perhaps you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Seriously though, this book was written 15 years ago. Gay marriage and civil unions were still pretty abstract concepts to most adults, let alone children.

It's got Grover Norquist's seal of approval. Sweet!

Actually, the mere mention of his name makes me want to stab things. ...
