Can you find historical evidence of someone named Rush Revere? Didn't even crack the cover yet and it's already inaccurate.

Take a poll of the kids to find out what they liked most about the book.

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.

I hardly find this surprising.  I work during the day, and almost never get a chance to hear his show. When I do get the opportunity, I sometimes tune in. ( Don't judge me, I also try to get the Sunday talking head shows ) His diatribes  used to be loosely aimed at the topics of the day. But at some point he started a tea company, and his show became weiled infomercials with fawining callers raving about the tea.  Then when the book came out, the calls were adoringly thankful for correcting the 'revisionist history the liberal teachers union is forcing down public school kids' throats'.  I rarely catch him talking about current topics.

Anyway, he has a huge audience, and he is regularly pushing his book to them. They buy the book and give it to their kids.  There are wast quantities of kids books out there.  But now you have a significant population that are all aware of one because of their parents devoted following of the author.  I assume this is an abnormal distribution process for a childrens book.

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.

No. Just pointing out that this is hardly a new concept.

Who said it was? Politicizing isn't a bad thing. Kids should know about the world around them.

Depends on what you're teaching. Obviously Rush's ghostwriter made the story cutesy enough that kids fell for the bullshiat "message." Which is disturbing.

whidbey: Tricky Chicken: Well, yeah.  How could somebody put a positive spin on McCarthy?  I am trying to think of an angle you could use.  Did he actually find some dirty commies plotting to bring us down? Did he do something good or noble?

You could easily say the Commies were actually trying to establish a foothold here, and that there could have been a tipping point where Stalin took power. Not a big stretch.


FDR was so desperate to let the Commies take over that he established the WPA and the CCC which undermined our Glorious Small Businessheroes. Why did he do it? Because the burly, manly Stalin was so beefy and macho that merely gazing upon his visage was enough to send liberals swooning -- after all, when did you see FDR playing football? Never. And look at Eleanor? Woof woof, what a pooch!

Then, when Republican heroes won World War II singlehandedly and began to usher in the greatest economic growth in human history Truman -- who wasn't even in the Situation Room when the bombs were dropped, you know -- wanted to use those WPA and CCC camps to socialisitically indoctrinate our youth (segregated by sex, and you know what would happen in those camps, wink wink, nudge nudge), but Rush Revere leapt astride his horse, then gently got on a different horse after the original one died of massive spinal trauma, screamed "HI HO, PUDDIN!" and rode to Wisconsin, where the Last True American wept at the loss of his country, broken and unable to go on. Rush walked up to this man and said "Say it's so, Joe. Better Dead Than Red. And, are you going to finish that?"

Smeggy Smurf: 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




I don't think forming an opinion of just how awful a book will be before having read it qualifies as "bigotry," especially when the author has provided so many examples of how awful he or she is. If I owned 3 Yugos (I have read 3 Limbaugh books over the years), and have concluded that Yugos are poorly made, would I have to own another one to presume it will be a cheaply made piece of sh*t?

Add to that Limbaugh's notorious co-opting of his version of our founding fathers/birth of the nation, and I feel even more confident in mocking this book without having read it.

Good Lord, Rush plugged this book every day on his show for weeks.  It was being marketed to Teabagger parents and grandparents.

"Oh, kids LOVE this book.  It's got a TALKING.  TIME-TRAVELING.  HORSE named Liberty.  It's just the greatest thing you've ever read.  And it's educational.  The thing is, it's not like liberal education where they shove it down your throat.  Kids love the story, and they're learning history - REAL AMERICAN history - while they're enjoying themselves."

"Here's a letter I got from Louise, in Lawrence, Kansas. *paper rusting noise*  Dear Rush...  I want to thank you for your wonderful book RUSH REVERE AND THE BRAVE PILGRIMS.  My grandkids normally hate books, but they couldn't get enough of this one.  They loved it, Rush!  They asked me to read it again THREE TIMES.  They really loved Liberty, the TALKING, TIME-TRAVELING HORSE.  And they learned the real history of the Pilgrims.  I'm so tired of American heroes being portrayed as villains.  I'm glad you wrote this book to tell the truth about our great country.  I'm going to buy a copy for our church library. Thank you so much, and please write more books!"

Obviously this is a paraphrase, but the tone is not exaggerated.

If it was any more stupid, condescending, sexist, historically inaccurate, boring, long-winded and pointless, it might serve as a base coat for the bottom of a guinea pig cage.
