Conservative author David Limbaugh joined Regnery Publishing for a party last night celebrating his book The Great Destroyer‘s place on the NYT bestseller list for four weeks so far.
Limbaugh gave what can only be described as a passionate, if a little frantic and long-winded speech on just how bad he wants President Barack Obama to lose the election. Limbaugh said he’s been asked if he simply writes books to make money. “If I had to choose between having a successful book and Obama winning and having an unsuccessful book and Obama losing,” he said, “I’d choose the latter.”
After the speech the floor was opened for Q&A. Because no one piped up immediately, Limbaugh volunteered TWT‘s Emily Miller who he is obviously familiar with, to ask something. Miller, known for writing a series of columns on the trouble of legally obtaining a gun in D.C., asked, “What’s gonna happen to our guns if this man (Obama) is elected?” From nearby Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) chimed in, “Keep them loaded.”
Shortly after we spotted Miller’s colleague Kerry Picket whose left leg was all kinds of banged up. She told us the black and blue bruises around her shin and knee were caused from a mountain biking accident. “I supermanned over the handlebars” Picket told us. Our thoughts and prayers are with her, though she seemed fine.
During dessert time we watched in amazement as D.C. publicist Janet Donovan skipped over the actual food and opted to eat the blackberry garnishes scattered around the platters. “Garnish is my favorite,” Donovan said, snatching up the for-decoration berries.
