Why Mommy is a Democrat. - X Rated - Not for Children

Tucker Carlson evidently thinks it's wrong to teach our kids about politics. He thinks "Mommy is a Democrat" is "creepy" and that children shouldn't be exposed to politics at their tender ages.

I suppose he thinks we ought to do away with civics class. My oldest great-granddaughter and I memorized the Preamble to the Constitution together the other evening for her class. She was letter perfect the next day. I probably shouldn't have done that. Worst of all, I've taken them along to peace vigils, moveon.org, and PFLAG (loosely political - we're activists among other things) meetings. Oh, and a couple of City Council and Board of Supervisors meetings as well. Someone call Child Protective Services - quickly.

Until I began voting permanent absentee a few years ago, they went with us to the polls and got their own I Voted stickers.

Shame on me.

On the other hand, remember "Mommy, There's a Democrat Under My Bed"? Tucker thought it was cleverly written and hoped it sold.

Can you spell hypocrite? How about two faced?

    "impose you politics on your kids"??? what the heck is that supposed to mean.

    Underlying assumption is politics is not values, ironic isn't it given the conservatives whole game plan.

    Not to mention his previous endorsement. But of course the right wingers are about nothing more than power, and they'll lie, steal and cheat to keep it. Tucker is case in point.

    no wonder he got his sorry booty kicked off the dancing with the stars first thing! It's a trite notion that panders to the conservative notion of all democrats are bad and it is such a shame that fear and hate mongers diminish critical thought and dialogue by harping on petty, inconsequential ideas for the sake of ratings. Definitely not worthy to be called a journalist of any degree..
