‘It’s All for the Troops’

-Thomas DiLorenzo
That’s what Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show today regarding the childless chickenhawk author’s children’s book, Rush Revere and the First Patriots.  During his usual endless self promotion, Limbaugh mentioned that he has heard that quite a few children have feelings of abandonment when their father or mother disappears for years on end in Afghanistan.  To soothe the young ones, and to do something “for the troops,” Limbaugh explained how he tells the story in his book of a time traveler who visits with George Washington and other founding fathers, and then tells his audience of children that their moms and dads who are busy murdering strangers in Afghanistan are engaged in the exact same thing as George Washington was during the American Revolution.  Makes you wanna puke, doesn’t it?
