Heaven help me…I know it’s impossible to write about Rush without being in any way political, but I like to think that if, say, Bill Maher did something this nutty, I’d write about it too. This is Stephen Colbert-level parody becoming real. I don’t think I even need to add commentary once I give you a taste of the official synopsis on Amazon:
MEET RUSH LIMBAUGH’S REALLY GOOD PAL, RUSH REVERE!
Okay, okay, my name’s really Rusty–but my friends call me Rush. Rush Revere. Because I’ve always been the #1 fan of the coolest colonial dude ever, Paul Revere. Talk about a rock star–this guy wanted to protect young America so badly, he rode through those bumpy, cobblestone-y streets shouting “the British are coming!” On a horse. Top of his lungs. Wind blowing, rain streaming…
Well, you get the picture. But what if you could get the real picture–by actually going back in time and seeing with your own eyes how our great country came to be? Meeting the people who made it all happen–people like you and me?
Hold on to your pointy triangle hats, because you can–with me, Rush Revere, seemingly ordinary substitute history teacher, as your tour guide across time! “How?” you ask? Well, there’s this portal. And a horse. My talking horse named Liberty. And–well, just trust me, I’ll get us there.
Okay, so to recap: Rush Limbaugh has a best friend who looks exactly like him, has almost the same name, and owns a talking horse. And he can time travel.
I don’t like Rush at all – but I actually think I’d be willing to help Kickstart a movie version. Unless we can convince Kirk Cameron to fund and star in it, which would be even better.
