In opening his radio show on Thursday, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh announced his first new book since 1993, “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional American.”
The book is a children’s book about Thanksgiving and Limbaugh’s version of the story of Thanksgiving, one which he tells his audience every year in his show right before the November holiday.
“My wife Kathryn came up with an idea that literally lit a fire under me,” Limbaugh said. “She said, ‘You know you’re always talking about how history is being mistaught. You’re right. You’re always talking about what kids are learning these days, and they’re not learning about the greatness of America. 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.’ She said, ‘Why don’t you write a book for kids?’”
The book brings to life “Rush Revere,” the caricature of Limbaugh on his line of beverages, Two if by Tea. Limbaugh told his listeners that depending on how this book goes, it could become part of a larger series of history books.
