Rush To The Rescue

Update: Headline on Drudge:

LIMBAUGH CHILDREN'S BOOK ROCKETS TO #1 AMAZON MONTH BEFORE RELEASE...

Ah, the power of the free market. No wonder the left hates it. It beats them every time.


Update end.
 
Rush Limbaugh has written a history book. I'll be getting one for all of my grandchildren. And academics shouldn't worry - it's illustrated. From the promo:

Rush Revere travels back in time to experience American history as it happens, in adventures with exceptional Americans! In this book, Rush Revere is a fearless middle-school history teacher who makes history cool, if I do say so myself! His first time travel is back to the deck of the Mayflower!
More heartburn for "the enemies of American Exceptionalism." Pre order your copy here.

Why not Jamestown instead of the yankee pilgrams?

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

Excellent question! Maybe that will be next.

Clay Martin said...

Also as I am sitting here thinking about this, wouldn't those people be exceptional British people, not Americans?

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

A minor detail sir. How 'bout "Americans in the making"?

Clay Martin said...

Minor? Really? Did the pilgrams see themselves as Americans?

I would expect better history from someone who is claiming their book will fix American history.

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

Yeah, you're right. Silly me.

Clay Martin, did Limbaugh actually claim his time-travel book "will fix American history?"

It seems a bit far-fetched even for the often bombastic El Rushbo.

I'm curious, did he make that claim or did you?

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

Rope - that's not really Clay's problem with the book. We know that.

ropelight said...

Yeah, but the devil's in the details. Martin's shown himself to be a stickler for detail, (Jamestown/Pilgrims - British/Americans) and the question isn't a difficult one: did Limbaugh say that, or did Martin make it up?

It's not an unreasonable question and it deserves an answer.

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

Not so much for detail - check out how he spelled "pilgrims."

ropelight said...

What say we put our tongues firmly in our cheeks and assume that Martin would have been generous enough to overlook the spelling error if Limbaugh had made it.

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

No doubt.
