The left and its media allies have systematically reduced Tea Party members to caricatures, calling them everything from "bigots" to "racists" to "terrorists," hoping to make something stick. The latest installment is a rewrite of the famous story tale "Alice in Wonderland," in which their "Mad Hatter" leader is none other than GOP presidential contender Michele Bachmann.
TBTM Media, the authors of "Going Rouge: The Sarah Palin Rogue Coloring & Activity Book" have unveiled their latest attack on conservatives with, "Malice in Wonderland: A Tea Party Fable," in which they proudly claim that they have rewritten the Lewis Carroll classic to reflect "a bizarro world populated by Tea Party crazies!"
Every conservative leader and commentator is excoriated in this tale, from Republican front runner Michele Bachmann as the Mad Hatter to Queen of Hearts Sarah Palin and even the "metaphorically challenged phallic symbol" Andrew Breitbart, as The Caterpillar. Ann Coulter stars as The Duchess, Michelle Malkin as her "shrieking ranchor pig baby," and Glenn Beck, who "scribbles madly on his Chalkboard" as the Match Hare.
The story, which can be purchased in book form, is fully illustrated with a cover drawing of Bachmann displaying her "crazy eyes" while wearing a Gadsden "don't tred on me" top hat in front of a misspelled sign that reads "Kik Him Out!" This attack on Bachmann follows a recent media firestorm, when an intentionally unflattering photo of her appeared on the cover of Newsweek magazine with the title "Queen of Rage."
TBTM author and "Malice in Wonderland" writer Julie Sigwart appears frequently on the unhinged lefty blog Daily Kos and is the author of "Going Rouge: The Sarah Palin Rogue Coloring & Activity Book." The book portrayed the former governor as a pistol packing, cleavage baring character, with activities such as "match lipstick to pigs." The book was featured in the Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly, and on the "Today" show.
