Well, what would you do if your choice was saying "Bestest book ever" or a trip to Uncle Rusty's Secret Touching Closet and an arm full of cigar burns?

Online votes are great indicators of reality.
Just ask President Ron Paul or the makers of the all time #1 box office hit Snakes On A Plane.

"Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims."

So it's a comedy?

When I want to read childrens fiction written by an angry old divorced drug addict, I stick with the best- Judy Blume.

It depends if you consider fictionalized accounts of history to be accurate, talking horse notwithstanding.

Hey Fark, lets come up with some more ideas for Rush!

Rush Revere and the Case of the Crippled Communist. Brave Rush Revere travels back to the 1930s and must stop a communist plot to turn Bootstrappy Americans into lazy welfare queens.

The Amazon link to his book:

According to the publisher, the book came out on October 29, 2013.  The top 5 helpful reviews were all written on October 29, 2013 too.

Odd....

Must they all be in the children's book category?  I'm quite fond of his guide, "Slut Shaming for Dummies."

Can you find historical evidence of someone named Rush Revere? Didn't even crack the cover yet and it's already inaccurate.
 
2014-05-15 01:26:26 PM
An online vote by 'children'. Because we all know those can't be manipulated.
 
2014-05-15 01:26:35 PM
Have any of you actually read the book?  Or at least skimmed it?  Of course not.  Bigotry knows no bounds when it's part of your politics and/or religion

Meh.  It's no Help! Mom! Hollywood's In My Hamper!.

/saw a rack of those Rush Revere books last time I was in a bookstore - several different titles - and damned if Rush's face wasn't exactly identical on every cover

Oh, I get it now. This chickenhawk is gonna insert himself into ever major American military conflict.

When is he gonna publish "Rush Limbaugh and the Pilonidal Cyst"?

That's just disgusting. A hateful racist drug-popping social conservative passing on his bullshiat views to kids.

Uncle Rusty's Secret Touching Closet happens to be the subtitle of the next Rush Revere book.

Never heardof/read this but I'm willing to put even money down that he never mentions how the brave pilgrims were saved by Native Americans who decided to show them how to properly farm the land instead of burning their settlement and scalping the whole lot.
 
2014-05-15 01:36:53 PM
Take a poll of the kids to find out what they liked most about the book.

I suspect "the funny fat guy on the front" beats "the great content" by a wide margin.

Got a kick out of the book review ratings on Amazon.  Any child that dares to be anything but bubbling with effusive praise is completely downvoted.

It felt a little bit like Reddit.

Does it include screen grabs from Sandra Fluke's sex videos? Does George Washington tell  Toussaint Louverture to take the bone out of his nose?

Gosh, I wonder why reasonable people wouldn't want to read something supposedly penned by that Huttese coil of bloated excrement?

Nominees are determined by how many copies their books sell, but winners are picked by kids, who vote online.

I hope all of those kids had a government issued picture ID.

So making fun of an obese, hateful addict who decided to write a children's book is "bigotry" now?

You guys just loving playing the victim don't you?

I never tea bagged a bowling ball return either but I don't have to visit every bowling alley in the country to know that it would hurt.

The guy's a farking moron. Not a moron actually, most likely plays the character of a moron to make money from actual morons.

One of Rush's virtues is that he can still make left-wingers go into vapor lock just at the mention of his name.

Yes, because the best way to convince people to see your "side" of anything is piss them off first. Flawless logic.

Speaking of vapor lock, here's a lovely article you may find entertaining, from the WaPo, regarding Limbaugh's award:

I did actually flip through it.

It read like most self-aggrandizing and humorless episode of Peabody & His Boy Sherman ever.  Not only is its premise completely lifted from one of my favorite childhood cartoons, it manages to completely lose the cleverness and humor that Jay Ward brought to the table.

Even as a child I would have been embarrassed on the author's behalf.

As always, right wingers mistake mockery for outrage. The guy's a joke. No one but the lunatic fringe actually takes what he has to say seriously. Unfortunately that fringe are the ones who vote.
