Not So Young But Angry Conservatives Unite

Getting sick of the progressively worse slant and obvious bias of the media? Got booted out of other sites for offending too many liberals? Make this your home. If you SPAM here, you're gone. Trolling? Gone. Insult other posters I agree with. Gone. Get the pic. Private sanctum, private rules. No Fairness Doctrine and PC wussiness tolerated here.....

Hillary Clinton not fan of new children's book

Hillary Clinton's Irked by Childrens Book

New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is attacking a children's book that depicts her as an inveterate liberal who tries to regulate a lemonade stand run by two budding entrepeneurs.
The book, "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!," by Katharine DeBrecht, stars "Congresswoman Clunkton" - a kind of cartoon verson of Nurse Rachet in a pantsuit who orders the young boys to reduce the sugar in their lemonade and add broccoli to each glass,
"Can’t wait for the sequel, Help! Mom! I Can’t Read This Book Because Republicans Have Cut Literacy Programs!” Clinton's spokesman Philippe Reines fumed recently in comments to The Hill newspaper.
A few days later, the Hillary flak lauched another attack.
"It’s not the liberal under the bed that they should be worried about,” he snapped, "it’s the sales that are in the basement.”
In fact, "Help! Mom!" has been flying off bookstore shelves since its release in September, topping the Barnes & Noble bestseller list and climbing on Amazon's list to just behind ""Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."
DeBrecht tells NewsMax that she wrote "Help! Mom!" because there were no childrens' books written from a conservative perspective.
On the other side of the political aisle, she noted, children are inundated with books like "It's Just a Plant: A Children's Story of Marijuana" and "No George, No: The Reparenting of George W. Bush "
"I can cite a ton of examples on the left that constantly attack conservatism," DeBrecht said. "But there was nothing there to basically teach traditional values."
The South Carolina-based writer got the idea for "Help! Mom!" after watching the 2000 GOP convention with her own young boys. Four years later, DeBrecht saw an ad on NewsMax.com for Xulon Press and self-published her story.
"Help! Mom!" caught the eye of Florida talk radio host Greg Allen, who put DeBrecht on his "Right Balance" radio show.
Allen helped put her in touch with World Ahead publishing, which reissued DeBrecht's book with new artwork under its Kids Ahead imprint.
Just two days after it was re-published in Sept. 2004, "Help! Mom!" was touted by conservative mega star Rush Limbaugh, who said his "hat was off" the the conservative childrens book writer.
The endorsement catapulted "Help Mom" to the top of the Amazon and Barnes & Noble bestseller lists.
Liberal reaction was swift. One left-wing website began comparing DeBrecht’s book to Nazi propaganda. Another, the Democratic Underground, trashed her as one of their "Top 10 Conservative Idiots.”
Far from slowing DeBrecht down, however, the overheated response has only encouraged her to begin a new project - turning her "Help! Mom!" book into a full-blown series.
Pending titles include: "Help! Mom! Hollywood Is in My Hamper!," "Help! Mom! There Are Lawyers in My Lunchbox!" and "Help! Mom! The Ninth Circuit Nabbed the Nativity!"
