Letter to Rush Limbaugh

Dear Mr. Limbaugh,

We’re two humor writers who would greatly appreciate the opinion of a pill-popping, bi-polar, bigoted racist with regard to our book, Waiting for Karl Rove.

It is presently doing the “behind-the-scenes” rounds all over Washington and New York and we've already managed to piss off Geraldo Rivera and irritate Karl Rove - but that’s another story.

In the book, you make an appearance along with a handful of other powerful Americans - Geraldo, Dick Cheney, Ann Coulter and Karl Rove, to name a few. As you can see, you're in pretty shitty company.

We would love to send you an autographed copy so you can introduce our brilliance to your gargantuan (racist, homophobic, Republican) listening audience - or you can buy 300 copies, since you’re rolling in cash. Consider it “supporting the arts.” Probably a tax deduction - check with your accountant. (The one that does your “dirty” set of books.)

We’d be honored to be attacked by you on-air after hearing Molly Ivins say it was ‘akin to being gummed by a newt, but leaves you with slimy stuff on your ankle. ’

That sounds like a perfectly interesting, if not slightly sadistic way to spend an afternoon.

Thanks in advance for the time and attention,

Kat Nove
