This is an absolutely hilarious book, and although the price is too steep, it's still an undeniable gem. It's the quintessential example of propaganda so ridiculous that it makes the best possible mockery of itself. It's rife with the usual tea party tenets:
1) Pandering to idiocy -- the "symbology" (to take an appropriate term from The Boondock Saints) in the book is a nothing less than a bludgeoning with a blunt instrument 2) Racism -- the greedy Hineese make an appearance that will make any sensible person wince. 3) Baseless Rejection of Science -- Mr. Snore represents the Nobel-prize winning science advocate Al Gore 4) Promotion of "Ox News" as the only news station that is fair and balanced 5) Religious overemphasis -- Naturally all good little children are Christian 6) Implication that Obama wasn't born in the US
and many others, that I'll leave it to you to discover!
Really a classic. My dad and I often try to 1-up each other with gifts that are either absurd or illustrate human absurdity -- I bought this for him and was declared the instant victor of 2011. I would've bought 5 copies if the price were more reasonable.
Complete and unadulterated brain washing rubish. Do yourself a favor and keep your children away from such political engineering and brain washing (from EITHER side). If you truly love the freedom and liberty of America, you'd let them make their own political decisions. And don't get me started on the historical MISinformation. An angry jack boot wearing, German speaking elf who heads the enforced "Elf Labor Union"? Give me a break! Anyone with a higher than 7th grade knowledge of history can tell you that the NAZIs were not only the extreme RIGHT on the political spectrum (fascists), but that labor unions were their first target of destruction. Do yourself a favor and stick to Clement C. Moore. Talk about a war on Christmas... sheesh!
Needs to take his anti-psychotic medication<>must have forgotten2012/7/9
Whew! Obviously insane <> Like I said, David W Hedrick needs to take his anti-psychotic medication. Must have forgotten. Lunatic, just like all the rest of the teapot [head] party. Ya know, the fantasies he builds in the book truly sound like something from a mind that has lost the synapse connections that make us normal. The neurotransmitters, dopamine, and serotonin are NOT connecting properly in HIS brain. Ya think?!!!?
Get a life or a straightjacket and get committed. Abusing your wife and NOT getting re-elected should have told you something. Told us!!! What a neo-maxi-zoomed-dweebie you are!! Go back to your hovel!
5 Star for being funny2014/4/13
Book is cheap and worth the cover and back of book. Content is a little eh but it's still hilarious.
Every child should have this book read to them2012/6/6
Well written, the analogies between the liberal/socialist elitists and the real world work extremely well. Good discussion points with your kiddos, too.
