A character named "Governor Sarah" helps two little boys fight for their swing-set business despite a scheming president named "Marxus" out to destroy them with high taxes and heavily regulations.

You get the idea Katharine DeBrecht is trying to tell us something with her new children's book?

Even the title --"Help! Mom! Radicals Are Ruining My Country!" -- suggests this book might, might, have more of a political bent than "Goodnight Moon."

Any similarities between any persons living or dead are purely and painfully obvious.

"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 tells "The book also shows that 'Marxus' and his radicals are basically killing the American Dream in their grab for power."

The story follows two young boys trying to hold onto the dreams of a swing-set business. They are demoralized by the crushing taxes, regulations and bureaucracy of President Marxus Obunduf.

Governor Sarah consoles them even as she is beset by those most vile of fiends -- journalists.

"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," an excited TV anchor woman announces in the book.

DeBrecht is also the author of (no kidding) "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!" and "Help! Mom! Hollywood Is In My Hamper!" Her latest book went on sale last month.

The battle for the hearts and minds of children is not limited to conservatives, of course. Another author, Jeremy Zilber, self-publishes books with titles such as "Mama Voted for Obama," "Why Mommy is a Democrat" and its sequel, "Why Daddy is a Democrat."

DeBrecht tells that not just children need to hear her message.

"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," she tells the Web site.

Other than telling people the president is a dangerous Marxist radical who is destroying the country, she has one other message she'd like to get across.

"We need to let our kids know that it is wrong to spread rumors and lies," DeBrecht tells "Unfortunately, many so-called journalists have basically told children that this is permissible as long as you disagree with someone's opinions."
