    "Glenn Beck and his magic erasable truth board." LOL!

    And to think that I was planning on going to one of those Commie libraries today.... :eek:

    "Books are free!" I can't even believe he said that.

    Its almost embarrassing to watch. Beck thinks he's so smart that everyone around him or listening to him needs a chalkboard like they're at school. I'm trying to think of better word but its just retarded.

    I can believe it. These people really are that ignorant and nothing they say surprises me anymore. It's just more idiotic teabagger hypocrisy, just like the "Keep the government out of my Medicare!" morons.

    It's just... I mean... doesn't the guy have handlers? Did no one think to call that out?

    Glen Beck is just becoming background noise. He's ridiculous. OTOH, I've never been able to get around Jon Stewart's smugness. I wouldn't waste my time watching either one of them. They rant on opposite sided of the spectrum, but both just rant.

    IMHO, the only value Jon Stewart has ever provided has been the introduction of Stephen Colbert. He can just fade away now, and I wish he would.

    "No Government In My Medicare." —teabagger mantra

    Is Beck really that stupid, or is it an act like Limbaugh's?

    Beck is the perfect example of *what* Faux News aspires to. I'll leave the "what" up to you. They got Palin, now Limbaugh would be a nice addition. You know that after the U.S. fascist revolution, Faux will be the state propaganda outlet.:eek:

    I'm surprised he didn't say, "And since they are free, it won't cost anything to burn the ones with which I disagree."

    He might have handlers, but I don't think they're the brightest crayons in the box, just look at all the stupid **** he's said on TV in the past. If he has handlers, they're doing a terrible job.

    Of course he has handlers. No one man can think up that much stupid **** on their own.

    But this really takes it. I mean, if there were an award for stupidity on TV, this would have to win.

    To answer both questions, I don't think Beck has handlers. I think he has enablers.

    Why do conservatives want idiots like this to speak for their cause? It makes a mockery of their agenda.

    Anytime I have ever watched his show it seemed like he found his material at the bottom of a bottle of jack and decided to go out on national TV.

    No one elects these people, half of his ratings are probably from him being a good entertainer/crazy bastard. He knows what he is doing. I have to admit there are few "dull moments" for an opinion show, watch it today if you want its like a trainwreck combined with a circus.

    I'm not talking about his ratings. He was hired to speak at CPAC.

    Ron Paul was also boo'd at CPAC if I recall correctly. The conservative movement has been hi-jacked by high rating talk show hosts, this is after we dealt with 8 years of neo-con spending. Some people can't be helped.

    Well, Beck is a former FM radio shock jock. You tell me.

    So he "educated" himself by going to a public library and reading "free" books and figuring out that "progressivism" is the evil?

    I'm more concerned with the "educated" himself part, I'm willing to bet he morphed his "education" to fit his political views rather than the other way around.

    There are so many smart and truly educated people in America who can't find jobs and idiots like him are setting the agenda, perhaps that's the real disease that's striking America.
