EW didnt receive a review copy of this book, so we have not actually read it (consider this top of my weekend to-do list), but here are some reactions from other critics:
(Excerpt) Read more at shelf-life.ew.com ...
Right on, Maha Rushi!
EW (whoever, whatever that is) is pissed because they didn’t “receive” a copy of the book. Limbaugh’s publisher was supposed to recognize that EW (again whoever or whatever that is) is a luminary among book reviewers or entertainment, or history, or whatever self-imagined status EW (whoever or whatever that is, again) has.
It has been insulted and thus feels justified in over-the-fence gossip.
“Hell hat no fury like a Liberal scorned.”
EW is Entertainment Weekly part of Time, Inc
“The poor people at the council have been receiving hate mail for supporting Rush Limbaugh when they were just trying to do a good thing and encourage kids to read. Alas, you know what they say about good intentions ”
So writer, the Childrens Book Council deserves hate mail?
What a double dose of snarky!
“Journalism”...bring a bias into the story and be an echo chamber for those who share your prejudice.
“Hell hat no fury like a Liberal scorned.”
Rush is to the Marxist/Dimocrap as wolfs-bane is to a vampire.
Actually guessed that, but I didn’t want to give them the satisfaction of my actually knowing what EW stands for....:o)
“Why not read it first?”
Are you kidding. It’s like the light of day,
to a vampire or cockroaches.
Actually, I draw it out more, like “EEEWW!”
Really, why read an entertainment magazine, and why take anything in its pages seriously?
I actually looked at the article and saw that it was written by dumb leftist writer, picking only negative reviews (written by other dumb leftists), creating his own echo chamber. And then the bulk of comments on the first page were from what is probably a paid leftist activist spreading misinformation.
The comments on the article (especially from knee-jerk liberals) are entertaining. Of course none of them read the book. Not that it would change their opinions if they had...
Of course not! It was only sent to those capable of reading and understanding it. It takes the reading level of children to be understood.
Gee, Entertainment Weekly reports that others did not like it and takes their opinion. Gee talking points even in the Entertainment World who ever would thunk it.
So now children are being bashed because they voted for the book. Next children will have to crusade to Washingto DC to save the country.
By the way Rush revere books are great. I have read them both. Thanks Rush for having the tenacity to write something about values and principles. This is what is lacking in America a moral compass. Rush must being doing something right because the liberals have their undies and panties in a bunch and they are mad. The old saying is watch it when the wasps are circling the nest, you stirred up some kind of trouble and the wasps are mad. (hey I am allergic to wasps, hornets and bees)
I find it entertaining daily when Lefties lose their marbles over the success a Conservative enjoys.
There. Fixed it.
“EW didnt receive a review copy of this book, so we have not actually read it”
Translation: You neglected to send us our payola. Now you get your legs broken.
Rush knew that sending them a copy was counter productive.
One does not feed his enemies before the battle, better let them starve on sour grapes
The libturds are going bonkers!
I didn’t read the article but let me tell you how dumb the author of this article is
Let us hope and pray the day is near when we can “flush” these damn libturds and be done with them. Spray a little air freshener and consign them to a very important chapter in the history books. Titled “Never let this happen again!”
Rap on, JoJo...
I like the way the author subtly suggests that Rush won because of fraudulent voting.
That’s a typical liberal strategy, but don’t ever suggest to them that there is any fake voting in actual elections.
Liberals believe, as a matter of faith, that the opinions of critics are far more valid than that of actual consumers (readers, viewers, etc). According to liberals, critics are much smarter than regular people, and they are especially good at deciding what kids like and enjoy.
I know from experience, when I was a kid, most of the critically approved books for kids left me stone cold.
But give me a Tom Swift book, and I was in heaven!
What a great idea-let the kids decide what they like, and forget what the pointy headed liberals think.
Congratulations to Rush!
Who actually voted on the award? Probably not the Liberal “do as I say, not as I do” mob!
I trust the /sarc tag is unnecessary here.
EW is pissed that the folks deciding the Childrens Choice Book Award didn’t check the official black-list before giving out the award.
The comments range from semi-intelligent to abhorent. Two questions for the Communists:
1. If this country is so awful, wht are you still here?
2. How come you don’t care about the corruption today - DeathCare, VA scandal, Fast and Furious, drones to kill Americans, an economy that is still in the crapper after 6 years of trillion dollar giveaways, and on and on?
Congratulations to Rush! He created books that actually TELL what out history is not what someone fabricates.
Where's the pun?
The Comments section was worth the read!

Didn’t get a review copy???? What a pathetic whine.
Since the book is obviously being sold, why not spend a few bucks and buy the darned thing?
I read this review of Rush’s book:
A barf alert is in order if you click on the link.
I learned these important things about the way liberals “think”:
1. The book is BS because time travel is impossible.
2. You shouldn’t read the book because Rush said something bad about Sandra Fluck.
3. The hat Rush is wearing on the cover of the book wasn’t in use at the time of the Pilgrims.
4. There were no horses on the Mayflower.
5. Rush avoided the draft.
6. Rush is a drug addict and the book is about drug abuse.
“I did not read the book, but here’s my report on it” only earned me an “F” in ninth-grade English class.
If only I had known that it could have also landed me a job with Entertainment Weekly...
Socialist Utopia is also impossible outside of a prison, but that never stopped them
I voted...it was a public vote via a website
Have you been to the DUmp since Rush won the award? Bet there are exploding heads.
EW didnt receive a copy?
My 10yo grandson managed to get ahold of one.
I had a student a couple of years ago who turned in what she claimed was her report, but she failed to notice that the review she had copied was about two books, the one she was pretending to have read and another book.
