More amusing Google ads...
I am a Gmail girl, I must confess. No matter how much I might like the idea of not being caught up the Google madness, I cannot reisit its pull. I love the keyword search, I never have to sort.
Anyway, I was amused at the ad bar this morning:
Why Mommy is a Democrat - littledemocrats.net - The book George Bush doesn't want your kids to read.
Curiousity won out, and I clicked. Here is what the site says:
Why Mommy is a Democrat brings to life the core values of the Democratic Party in ways that young children will easily understand and thoroughly enjoy. Using plain and non-judgmental language, along with warm and whimsical illustrations, this colorful 28-page depicts the Democratic principles of fairness, tolerance, peace, and concern for the well-being of others. It's a great way for parents to gently communicate their commitment to these principles and explain their support for the party.
Why Mommy is a Democrat may look like a traditional children's book, but it definitely isn't just for children. With numerous subtle (and not-so-subtle) satircal swipes at the Bush administration and the Republican party, Why Mommy will appeal to democrats of all ages!
Finally, a portion of the profits will be donated to Democratic candidates and party organizations, so your purchase will help make an immediate difference.
I guess the illustraion would be one of their subtle swipes?
Question for mommies out there-- am I missing something here? Because I see this as indoctrination, not teaching. What's your take?
