Mrs. Bill, the Prettiest Candidate, and Barack the Wonder Boy all think that reading a

Gay Prince Fairy Tale

to children in the second grade is perfectly appropriate, although Mrs. Bill (the most conservative of the three, it’s turning out) did waffle a tad. Not so the Pretty One, who is proving to be, in typical lawyer fashion, the kind of guy who’ll say just about anything, no matter how absurd, just to appeal to the MoveOn far-far lefties. Wow…

    I’m not sure I’m so keen on that one…I haven’t read the book, so I can’t say for sure whether it’s appropriate, but I’m never real big on the idea of reading fairy tales involving love stories to kids. I’m not sure second-graders can really comprehend that just yet.

    And I can understand the point of view of a parent who doesn’t want their child exposed to that kind of thing, but eventually they will be in one fashion or another; the only way to avoid it is to put them in a private Christian school. I’m not saying that should be the only alternative, but would you rather your child be exposed in a controlled setting, or exposed by their friends in high school, who you can’t control?

    And thank you to the smartest man in the room, moderator Tim Russert, for asking such a totally absurd and irrelevant question in the first place. Last time I checked the president of the United States is not in the habit of setting academic policy in the classrooms of America’s elementary public school systems. That’s a job for local officials.
    But isn’t it interesting that the Breck Girl says he doesn’t want to influence his kids’ opinions about the issue. “I don’t want to make that decision on behalf of my children,” he said. “I want my children to be able to make that decision on behalf of themselves… I don’t want to impose my view. Nobody made me God.” Pardon me Mr. Edwards, but that’s a steaming load of horse manure. It’s your job to influence your kid’s opinions. You’re a parent. That’s how they learn the difference between RIGHT and WRONG. Oh ya… I forgot. You’re a lawyer…

    And speaking of irrelevant, don’t you just love the response of the Republican pretty one? He thinks Democrats are “out of touch” with America. What we need is “a federal marriage amendment and also insisting on marriage before having children.” Wow, Mitt! Bravo! You really nailed it! That’s an amazing solution to the issue of elementary public school teachers who want to impose their liberal views of sexual “orientation” on second graders.

    Don’t you just love politics?
