Yesterday, I received a review copy of Zev Chafets’ Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One from the kind folks at Sentinel Books. I haven’t had a lot of time to really dig into it, but I find it’s not a book that needs a lot of deep pondering. The story of how Rush Limbaugh made himself, with the help of a few folks along the way, into the most influential voice in the conservative movement and a broadcasting legend is not particularly complicated.
Ed Driscoll has an interview coming with Chafets on this weekend’s PJM Political on the book. I expect it’ll be as enjoyable and informative as every other Driscoll interview I’ve heard. In the meantime, Ed has a couple words for the Ombudsman of the Washington Post, who assigned their review of the book to David Frum, who is exactly the wrong person to give anything written about Rush Limbaugh a fair shake.
I’ll have more to day about the book, and Frum’s knee-jerk negative review of the book in a day or so, when I’m finished reading it myself.
