The Tea Party Coloring Book for Kids!

Isn't this just the most amazing thing? And here I thought a feminist coloring book was good. This just blows all other coloring books out of the water though.


According to the Globe:
"The Tea Party Coloring Book for Kids," published by Really Big Coloring Books of St. Louis, purports to be a "teaching and learning tool." But many of the pictures to be colored and dot-to-dots to be completed are accompanied by fun passages such as this: "When taxes are too high, the high tax takes away jobs and freedom. In 1773 we had a Tea Party and this led to freedom from high taxes. Today we are having another Tea Party and this will lead to freedom from high taxes again! Ask grandma and grandpa what this means. Ask you friends what this means. Are you going to have your own Tea Party?" The text runs above and below a cartoon of a woman (the president? hmmm, wonder who that is) preparing to sign a tax code. I'm kind of hoping there's a sequel, maybe something like "The Tea Party Nursery Rhyme Coloring Book," where Jack and Jill get injured while carrying a pail of water, wind up in a bleak government-run hospital where they wait for days to be treated, develop gangrene from their infections, and are finally euthanized by a "death panel."
I kind of want to buy one, but I already found Holden listening to Glenn Beck on his toy radio/microphone and I don't want to test fate.

  1. I like the idea.
    With this book, there's no need for the truth. We could put whatever we want on Lady Liberty, we could take Jefferson out of talks about our country's beginning.

    BUT, if we really want to get back to "the good old days", we'll have to forgo that notion that a woman is qualified to be POTUS. Let's go all the way !
