I made the mistake of looking it up on amazon, and now my screen is filled with similar coloring books, autobiographies and other screeds by today's leading conservatives. It will probably take a month of surfing other titles before I get my home page cleaned. Another title that caught my eye was this one, Help Mom! There are Liberals Under My Bed! which actually dates back to 2005. Hence, the outdated image of Ted Kennedy on the cover.
You have to wonder who these coloring books are intended for. Is the GOP so worried about its aging brand appeal that it is aiming for a whole new generation to storm the electorate in 12 years time? Or, does this just serve as some silly novelty that has long been the staple of campaigns? After all, you could actually get a Mitt oven glove during the 2012 campaign. Whatever the case, I don't think these coloring books are going to serve more than fodder for news comedy programs and Conservative day care centers.
