Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot

Whatever asks Dave Counts, Cartoonist Extraordinaire, if he's checked out Al Franken's New Book

Have I read it?! Do I have an autographed copy of "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot?"

And I'm not talking about Al Franken's autograph, either. I've got the rare combination that will make my copy worth millions. My copy is autographed by Limbaugh himself! Fat boy was at a book signing near B.U. and I substituted Franken's book for Limbaugh's "The Way It Ought to Be." He could barely reach the table, impeded as he was by his own girth, and I almost felt guilty as I shoved the falsely jacketed Franken tome under Limbaugh's pudgy, little hand as it dangled by his side.

"To Dave," I asked earnestly.

"Sure, Dave," he said. Then pausing for a moment he looked me right in the eye and continued, "You, doing anything later?"

"I'm sorry," I said, not quite understanding.

"Well, I'm in town for the night, I've got a room at the Four Seasons and I thought..."

"Oh, sorry, no. I'm straight."

"Oh, pardon me. I sensed some tension. I thought maybe we were having a moment."

"No, I'm just a platonic admirer."

"Well, then, Megadittos, Dave."

"Mega Dittos, Rush."
