    I can assure you that he probably understands that the nation was founded by classical liberals on classical liberal principles, that were the polar opposite of the principles the modern day social and political liberals promote. That classical qualifier is critical if you are going to be honest about who founded this country.

    And I concur with others who are pretty sure those trashing Rush's children's books are doing so because it is so often required of liberals that they trash anything associate with Rush, however dishonestly they do that. They declare books they have not read as being inferior and dangerous and then call the rest of us stupid? Just mind boggling sometimes.

    I think when you're picking a babysitter, past drug use is a fair factor to consider.

    Now we're talking about Rush being a babysitter?

    Hmm.

    Well, having kleptomaniacs as babysitters ain't so grand either:

    After they were criticized for taking $190,000 worth of china, flatware, rugs, televisions, sofas and other gifts with them when they left, the Clintons announced last week that they would pay for $86,000 worth of gifts, or nearly half the amount.

    If you have kids, or nieces/nephews you want to get interested in American History, these are some good reads.
    How big is your ego that you have to rename Paul Revere after yourself? "Rush Revere?" Seriously?

    **** him

    The question remains the same with or without the link. How can people judge a book without having read it?

    If Rush wanted to teach kids about American values, he would write a How-to book on how to market to consevatives. He is the undisputed King of marketing American values for cash.

    They can't, not in any real sense. The major fallacy, though, is continuing to compare Rush to Charles Manson. Who should I expect next? Bundy? Dahmer? Gacy? Stalin?

    So what you're saying is Charles Manson's book can't be judged by it's author?

    Thats a ridiculous fallacy. Unlike those serial killers you mentioned, Manson didn't actually kill anyone....and neither has Limbaugh. The comparison of Limbaugh to Manson stems from the fact that both use Nazi techiques to manipulate people and both wrote a childrens book.

    Yeah, they really wanted a big, overbearing government that confiscated the freedoms that they were trying to protect. Duh!
