Blue-on-blue attack

I just love the irony here ...

Adam Mansbach wrote a very funny book about his travails getting his daughter to sleep. Based on Mr. Mansbach's web site, which cites lots of praise from lefties (the New York Times Review of Books, Michael Eric Dyson, etc.), I'm assuming he's at least comfortable in the company of liberals, whatever his personal politics may be.

But now, his book is under attack from CNN, due to its "violent language" and, illogically, because parents don't read to their children enough. "Experts" criticize the book with statements like "Imagine if this were written about Jews, blacks, Muslims or Latinos," and "Now I find it unsettling. I don't like violent language in association with children." Because, according to these humorless scolds, frustrated parents always resort to child abuse or murder when their kids won't sleep. It's a wonder that the next generation survives at all.

Like Sun Tzu, I love it when there is discord in the enemy's camp ...
