Goodnight Moonbat
By Lisa De Pasquale

There are thousands of authors that would sell their 
souls for a positive 500-word New York Times review of 
their book.  No doubt that many of these authors have 
groundbreaking books on important issues.  Putting 
those aside, last Sunday the Times featured a children’s 
book that blatantly copies the classic Goodnight Moon.  
Its purpose is bashing the Bush Administration, natch.  
The Times’ Joanne Kaufman writes:

    The cover of Goodnight Bush looks almost exactly 
    like Goodnight Moon — green and orange, with an 
    image of a window and fireplace — and uses a similar 
    rhyme scheme. But there the thematic similarities 

    The authors, Erich Origen and Gan Golan, set their 
    story in “a situation room.” There is no bunny 
    snuggling into bed, but rather George W. Bush grinn-
    ing and wearing a “Mission Accomplished” flight 
    suit. Instead of three little bears sitting on 
    chairs, there are “war profiteers giving three 

Goodnight Bush’s publisher told the Times, “[T]his 
had so many brilliant gags. You could spend so much 
time looking page by page.”

It’s amazing what passes for “brilliant” in leftists’ 
circles.  These authors must have honed their skills 
in college by making “Bush is Hitler!” placards.  The 
authors’ gags include a clock permanently set on 9:11, 
a copy of the Constitution that’s been written over in 
crayon, “a tiny scurrying Osama bin Laden” in place of 
the mouse that runs around throughout Goodnight Moon, 
and an “Ohio 2004” ballot box burning in the fireplace. 

The text is just as subtle:

    Goodnight Constitution. And goodnight evolution.

    Goodnight old growth trees. Goodnight detainees.

Obviously, Goodnight Bush is meant for childish liberals 
rather than children.  Accolades from the media are num-
erous and nauseating.  The San Francisco Chronicle purrs, 
“Goodnight Bush stands to become a popular American pol-
itical parody.” 

Salon.com coos, “Seldom have an administration's failings 
been set to such a lulling cadence.”  Of course, one would 
expect Goodnight Clinton to be wrapped in plastic and sold 
in the back of the store with a “Sexually Explicit Material” 
warning label (or widely available in America’s public

A blogger for The Village Voice writes, “Cute illustrations 
abound: a refinery plume, piggy war profiteers, a spilt 
glass of water with Katrina victims floating in it.  The 
text is warm and fuzzy — not as fuzzy as Bush's brain but 
warmer than Cheney's heart.”

In the month between the San Francisco Chronicle and New 
York Times articles, Goodnight Bush jumped from #507 to 
#57 as of this week.  Apparently, liberals have an easier 
time reading a 48-page children’s book because there are 
dozens and dozens of unsuccessful Bush-bashing books 
collecting dust. 

There are several “children’s books” parodying the genre 
and bashing the Bush administration.  Young Dick Cheney 
(150 pages) boasts that it is “a wickedly funny faux-
children’s biography recounts Young Dick Cheney’s youth-
ful lust for guns, oil, and the girl of his dreams.”  
Intellectual giant Phil Donahue says it’s “a big hoot.”  
Arianna Huffington says the book “pries back the door 
on our secretive Vice President.”  The only thing more 
secret is Arianna’s electric bill.

Yiddish with George and Laura (112 pages) “invades the 
ultimate bastion of American WASP culture: Kennebunkport, 
home of the Bush clan.”  For the supposed purpose of 
teaching Yiddish terms, the authors write about Laura 
Bush finding a baby in the woods and George Bush telling 
her to throw it back.  In another scene, brother Neil 
Bush asks, “But what if a child does get left behind?”  
“‘Then he can join the Army,’ says George.” 

Other “progressive” children’s books include:

My First Presidency: A Scrapbook by George W. Bush 
(68 pages)

Punch Out the President (and Pals!): A Paper Doll Book 
Starring W. and Friends (32 pages)

At an average of 71 pages, it’s no surprise that so many 
pathetic liberal authors gravitate to the children’s 
genre.  No footnotes are needed because they make the 
same statements found in the DailyKos comments section.  
Bush is dumb!  Halliburton!  Impeach Cheney!  Diebold!  
9-11 was an inside job!

As the end of the George W. Bush presidency nears, one 
wonders what will become of all the leftists who have 
made a living bashing the President and the Vice Pres-
ident with colorful pictures and words.  I suppose 
they’ll just go back to their cushy jobs at America’s 
colleges and universities.  Or perhaps they’ll butcher 
another classic and pen Paddington Bares It All for 
PETA or The Little Engine That Could – Thanks to 
Affirmative Action.
