If I'm reallyreally good, can I get it?

Feast your eyes on this one (and, no, I am not making it up):
Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed

This full-color illustrated book is a fun way for parents to teach young children the valuable lessons of conservatism. Written in simple text, readers can follow along with Tommy and Lou as they open a lemonade stand to earn money for a swing set. But when liberals start demanding that Tommy and Lou pay half their money in taxes, take down their picture of Jesus, and serve broccoli with every glass of lemonade, the young brothers experience the downside to living in Liberaland.

For my birthday? Please? Please?

In the description, it also claims that this book is "the answer to a baseball mom's prayers." In my second year of little league, a mother from the opposing team followed our coach home and upon arriving at his home, chased him across his front lawn, screaming obscenities at him. (She also personally groomed the mound for her son every game he pitched, loudly razzed opposing players and, made a general ass of herself every chance she got before eventually pushing her son so hard that he tore his rotator cuff in high school.) Her precious flower had been hit by a pitch. It was clear that he was hit in retaliation for yours truly being beaned in the head (I said I was okay, but then ran to third) and she may have had the right to be bothered by such measures being used by a coach in charge of eight year olds.

That said, she was still batshit crazy, calling to mind the kind of individual who might refer to herself as a "baseball mother" as if that made her better than a soccer mom or someone who might buy this book for her kids.
