Rush Limbaugh's New Children's Book Is Coming
Nothing good ever starts with his name, and this is no exception: Rush Limbaugh's coming out with another children's book. Who thought this was — I mean, isn't that wonderful. That's all children in today's world need, right? More Rush Limbaugh. It wasn't enough to already have one children's book by Rush Limbaugh; in fact, we need a series.
The book, titled Rush Revere and the First Patriots: Time Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans , is expected to hit the shelves on March 11. It appears to be a sequel to Rush's first book, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans, and will seemingly depict Rush Limbaugh's not at all disguised alter-ego, middle school teacher Rush Revere, as he travels through time and hangs out with historic American figures.
Or at least those historic Americans who are heroes to conservatives. I sort of doubt he'll be making visits to FDR's New Deal White House, to Harvey Milk's office, or to Native American freedom fighters like Tecumseh, Crazy Horse, or Sitting Bull. And while I could maybe picture "Rush Revere" popping in at the Seneca Falls convention or the March on Washington, I also feel like his time-traveling take on events might make me want to scream myself hoarse.
Which sort of begs the question, I guess: Between Rush Limbaugh ignoring the fight for rights among anyone who wasn't straight, white, and male or Rush Limbaugh actually trying to talk about those things, which is worse?
In the best of all worlds, his series dies out before it hits the 20th century. Or the 19th, for that matter. Because really, we're going to subject kids to a Rush Limbaugh version of history? Where "The true story of Thanksgiving is how socialism failed?” Okay then.
According to Amazon, in the new installment in the Time Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans series "Rush Revere is transported back to the people and events leading up to the American Revolution." And if you just can't wait to see what it's all about, it's currently available for pre-order. It's popular already; Amazon lists it as number 11 on their current books bestseller list.
I could use some time travel myself right about now, to get far away from here.
