Please tell me this is a plant.

I really don't want to believe that actual Democrats are behind Why Mommy is a Democrat.

When I read it, I assumed it was a spoof by somone vaguely hostile.

It seems that Democrats are more than a little bit squirrely!

And just what kind of "toys" does Mommy share anyway? ;-)

Sadly, this does not appear to be a spoof or a plant.

Jeremy Zilber is a professor of government at Lawrence University in Madison. Googling him, it's pretty clear that this guy really means it.

The author, sadly, is actually serious. In fact, he made a somewhat whiny post on MyDD the other day about how liberal bloggers aren't promoting his book enough. I replied to him by quoting Thich Nhat Hahn's third precept:

Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education. However, through compassionate dialogue, help others renounce fanaticism and narrowness.

But I don't think he got it. *sigh*
