Katharine DeBrecht, who also authored Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!, places the character "Governor Sarah" in a situation where she tries to help two young boys keep their dream of making a success of a swing-set business, but the enterprise is up against the statist policies of high taxes and overregulation. In addition, the young entrepreneurs have to deal with no fewer than 246 government "czars":
"I am trying to let all Americans know that these radicals are killing the American Dream and I want to stop them from hurting people that produce products and provide jobs," the Palin character consoles the frustrated boys after their business is destroyed by "Marxus Obunduf" who is based on President Obama.A slideshow of illustrations from the book is here. Katharine DeBrecht's official website is here.
"I used Palin because I wanted to point out that there is nothing wrong with standing up for your values regardless of who attacks you," DeBrecht told Foxnews.com. "The book also shows that 'Marxus' and his radicals are basically killing the American Dream in their grab for power. I want to tell kids that they can achieve their dreams by working hard and not relying on the government to help them."
"We have breaking news just in from a 37-year-old man who lives in his parents’ basement that Governor Sarah’s mother is actually an alien," the excited anchor woman said. "And from this exclusive source, we can confirm that Governor Sarah feeds her children dog food for breakfast, lunch and dinner."
