It's been twenty years since a new book by Rush Limbaugh has graced the shelves of bookstores but now the wait is over.
Limbaugh's latest literary endeavor is a children's book, "Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans," which he says will "set the record straight" about the settling of the United States, a topic he feels has been "bastardized" by liberal school teachers.
I talk about it all the time. I lament what's going on in schools all the time. But this is my way of doing more than what I'm doing now. It is a way of teaching what isn't being taught. This isn't being taught.
The books protagonist, Rush Revere--a body in colonial dress drawn around a photo of Limbaugh's head-- was already the mascot for Limbaugh's "Two If By Tea" brand of bottled iced tea drinks. Now he's a substitute middle-school teacher with a talking horse named "Liberty" and the ability to travel back in time, because as Limbaugh said on the air, "Kids love time travel."Slate & The Daily Beast
