I found via Ace the website for "Why Mommy is a Democrat," which uses cute pictures of squirrels to illustrate the core principles of the Democratic Party. This site is not satire. I quote from the sample pages (you'll have to imagine the syrupy drawings of squirrels):
Sorry Warren Beatty, but the Democratic party called and said I could have your yacht this weekend.
Too bad these schools don't teach one to write sentences with subordinate clauses properly. (Does Mommy share her toys? Go to school?)
Mommy must be a Democrat because she has the brains of a rodent.
Yes, that squirell thing is very very stupid. But now the sides are equal. You forget the conservative book "Help!Mom! There are Liberals Under My Bed!" by Katharine DeBrecht. According to its book description on Amazon,
First of all, el dave, "squirrel" is the spelling of the rodent. Second of all, "Help! Mom! ..." uses metaphors of substance, whereas "Mommy is ..." substitutes slogans for thoughts. Hey, come to think of it, isn't that a close parallel between conservatives and progressives (I know y'all hate to be tarred with the "L-word.")?
