Partisanship for Kiddies

I saw this article in the Oregonian today.  It seems that some want to shower their political mania on kids

      That's why this holiday season we have books such as "Why Mommy Is a Democrat" and "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!"

Please!  Freaks, please leave the children alone.  Let them grow up thinking the world is a wonderful, magical place.  They’ll figure out the rest all too soon on their own.

A reader noted that the article brings up Bill O’Reilly’s book “The O’Reilly Factor for Kids” as an example of a conservative writing a political book for kids, but if the author had bothered to research the book a bit, he would note that this book had very little to do with politics, but was O’Reilly trying to educate kids about growing up and what to expect.  Not that he really has the background for that kind of thing, ala Bill Bennet or something.  More lazy reporting.
