It's kinda funny that the pilgrims just accepted Rush Revere and his talking horse because usually they burnt people like him at the stake. lol
    That's your complaint? It's a children's book!

    But, we're hearing the complaints from some of the most historically handicapped people in the world.

    Very impressive, but your dodge doesn't cover your lie.

    A moron with two books is still a moron.

    More simply for you, zero times one and zero times two are both still equal to zero.
    Not if the book is worth reading.

    If you've read any childrens book, even a historical account, you will note that things are often not 100% accurate.

    Just admit you are butthurt by Rush, and thats why you are clinging to this absurd point.

    Re: Rush Limbaugh selection in children’s book competition causes a stir

    If the books are presented as pure fiction, or are historically accurate, I have no issue with the choice. If he misrepresents history to support arguments for the socially harmful aspects of his worldview (ie. his nationalism, racism and sexism), then I find it objectionable. As long as the Children’s Book Council is not funded by taxpayers they have the right to choose any authors.

    Meh. I would put much more stock in someone's review if they weren't a fan of his. She is clearly a listener who doesn't believe that Rush is guilty of right wing propaganda.
