    You did not even attempt to begin to refute one word I said. All you did was hunker down in True Believer mode. Why is that? Is the kool-aid that strong with you?
    Well I thought I did. Sorry I didn't meet your standards.

    You lower yourself with grade school logic responses all the time, so I don't see where you're changing that. Limbaugh is an asskicker on the radio whether you want to admit it or not. Not a single liberal can touch him, I'm really sorry but the truth is the truth. And he make $millions in the process.

    You failed to substantiate any claim you made against me with an example and support for that charge. You also failed to speak to the reality that Limbaugh reaches perhaps four to 5 % of Americans with his show and while he may be king of a niche market in a minor medium - it is still a niche market in a minor medium.

    I never said the book is horrible. My point is I would not expose any of my kids to this clown, nor will he get any richer off my dime.

    Lets flip the script....

    Suppose Al Sharpton did the same thing and wrote a children's book that is completely honest. Would you give his book the time of day?
    Well, if Sharpton writes a book, he better write better than he speaks or no one will be able to understand what he is trying to say.

    Two words: "Ghost Writer".
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If she writes like she legislates, we would have to buy her book to see what's in it.

    I guess you wouldn't buy a book by Edgar Allen Poe, Steven King, William Faulkner or Charles Dickens then.

    Of course this only names a few of the myriads of authors who suffered with substance abuse.

    Wouldn't Sharpton naturally be afraid of ghosts?
