Meet Rush Limbaugh, children's book author
'Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims' is an attempt to correct the 'mistaught' history of early America.
"Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans" tells the story of Rush Revere, a "fearless middle school history teacher, who transports himself back in time" to the first Thanksgiving. According to the Daily Caller, the 62-year-old broadcaster was inspired to write his first book since 1993 by his wife, Kathryn.
"She said, 'You know you're always talking about how history is being mistaught. ... They're not learning about the founding days. They're not learning the right things about the great people, the exceptional people in this country," the conservative website quotes him as saying.
For parents who want their children to become "dittoheads," the book is available now for orders on Amazon (AMZN) ahead of its Oct. 29 release. Given Limbaugh's huge popularity, "Rush Revere" should sell well.
Limbaugh has shared his spin on the story of the fabled meeting between Pilgrims and Native Americans with his radio audience of about 14 million weekly listeners for years. As Dylan Byers noted in Politico, the moral of last year's version was vintage Limbaugh: "The true story of Thanksgiving is how socialism failed. With all the great expectations and high hopes, it failed. And self-reliance, rugged individualism, free enterprise, whatever you call it, resulted in prosperity that they never dreamed of."
Dr. Suess he isn't.
Believe it or not, many of Limbaugh's fellow conservative have also tried their hand at writing for kids. Glenn Beck issued "The Christmas Sweater:A Picture Book" in 2009. Fox News' Bill O'Reilly has written four books for those he has dubbed "junior fans" of his "O'Reilly Factor" show, including "Kids are Americans Too." Callista Gingrich, the wife of former House Speaker turned CNN "Crossfire" co-host Newt Gingrich, has written two books for budding young conservatives detailing the adventures of Ellis the Elephant.
Limbaugh certainly doesn't need the money from the book. According to Forbes, the top-rated talk show host in the country pulls in about $66 million annually.

ummm does it make any difference that socialism did not exist at the time of the first Thanksgiving?
I know the GOP does not like education. This is a bright example.
The 4 times-married slob, sperm-less whale, draft-dodging, convicted pill-popper, POS, racist liar-- who knows only what he's told thru his earpiece-- on his crummy hate-radio show-- is suddenly gonna be writing for kids?
Hope his listeners and knuckle-dragging enablers all buy that nonsensical garbage-to-be. Buyer's remorse will sure be funny, then!
He's already wrote the book and submitted it to the publisher. As your own article states it's coming out in October.
So he's not 'planning' on writing anything, past tense not current.
Maybe the part where Native Americans shared their ideas on survival in harsh conditions, and the part where they provided food for many hungry pilgrims was "Native Capitalism." I'm sure Rush would say that was all a lie too.
Just think if the Native Americans hadn't "shared" what they knew and understood about living in this so called New World, the pilgrims would had died off.
Furthermore, give it time and Rush Limbaugh will "Self Destruct."
