Hardball-Jackson-Help I'm not a violent man, but this segement on Friday's "Hardball" made me want to hurl something at my tv. Chris Matthews' guests are conservative publisher Eric Jackson, pimping his new global warming denial book for children and author, Frances Moore Lappe, who discuss teaching children about the left and right and in particular the book, Mom! Help! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!. This book is clearly designed to scare the crap out of young children by brainwashing them into believing that liberals are scary, evil people. What's more infuriating is that Jackson claims Laurie David's new book, The Down-to-Earth Guide To Global Warming is just as frightening to children as showing Hillary Clinton and other liberals as violent and dangerous villains.
