Editorial Reviews for this title:
Al Franken strikes bodyblows at his favourite targets, the rantings of right wing politicians and the media hacks show support them, starting with his favourite, 300lbs (and growing) Rush Limbaugh.
Rush Limbaugh claims his talent is on loan. With this book, Franken demonstrates that he owns. The frankly Democratic author's shtick reminds us how much of a free ride conservatives have gotten in the mainstream media. For instance, he really drives home the weirdness of the conservatives' preachiness about "family values" in light of Newt Gingrich's and Bob Dole's first marriages, and Rush Limbaugh's first, second and third marriages. And he has great fun with Rush's and Newt's miraculous draft deferments in a chapter where he imagines all of the great conservative "chicken-hawks" out on a Vietnam war patrol under the leadership of Ollie North.
A wickedly funny collection of essays that takes ahard-edged, insightful look into the wonderful, terrible,complicated world of American politics.Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot by Al Franken. Copyright 1996 by Al Franken, Inc.Copyright 1996 by Al Franken, Inc.
