    Hm. Not my kids. And of course the reviews are going to be good. The only people who would waste their money on such tripe would be people who actually believe him.

    Stand by. Next month, Ann Coulter rewrites history by swearing up and down that liberals fired the first shot at Ft. Sumter.

    Good grief let's hope it's being marketed under fiction.

    So somebody who is familiar with the show is less qualified to state that the book is not politically slanted like the show than say somebody who hates Rush and declares a book they never read is unfit because they don't like Rush? You really want to make that your point of view?

    I wouldn't want anybody who listens to his bull**** give me a review any more than anyone who hates his bull****.

    Personally, I'd rather have an unbiased review, but that'd be impossible to come by when it comes to anything dealing with that hate monger.
