CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) _ A Limbaugh is making waves in political circles, but it isn’t Rush.

This time, the conservative radio host’s brother, David Limbaugh, is the one making rounds on major news talk shows. The first book from the Cape Girardeau, Mo., lawyer and syndicated columnist, ``Absolute Power,″ rose as high as No. 2 on The New York Times best seller list and now is No. 3. Some 150,000 copies have been printed.

A successful book isn’t even the best thing going for Limbaugh. His wife, Lisa, gave birth Friday to the couple’s first son. The couple also has three daughters.

``Absolute Power″ is an indictment of the U.S. Department of Justice under former President Clinton and former Attorney General Janet Reno.

The book has spent seven weeks on the Times best seller list. Limbaugh acknowledges his brother’s popularity has helped, but believes it has sold well for another reason.

``There’s a sense of unquenched justice, that (Bill) Clinton never was brought to account, that the full truth never has been reported,″ he said.
