Glenn Beck

Glen Beck has always been an asshole. And a smug, smirking little asshole at that. This is a guy who accused a U.S. Congressman of "working with our nation's enemies," asked a guest on his show whether Obama might be "the Antichrist," speculated that dennis kucinich had given his wife "the date-rape drug," etc. etc. etc.
But now Beck has accomplished something previously acheived only by the cackling witch Ann Coulter - he has made Bill O'reilly seem like the voice of reason! Beck is actually suborning armed insurection against the US government. Now, he won't come right out and say, "let's have a civil war," even Fox might fire you for that, and he's too much of a weasel, Instead, the conversation went like this:

BECK: I'm not -- Bill, I'm not looking for a revolution.

O'REILLY: But you're predicting it.

BECK: Well, wait a minute. Is that a problem? Is it a problem to point out -- wait a minute, is it a problem to point out Bill O'Reilly -- is it a problem. You get no food from me. You come knocking at my bomb shelter? I'm going to say, "Is that Bill O'Reilly? Can't hear you." Listen, here's the thing. It is not a problem to point out...

O'REILLY: I would rather starve, Beck. Than knock on your bomb shelter door asking you for food.

BECK: Oh, you will.

O'REILLY: I'll go down before I do that.

BECK: Listen, here's the thing. You come near it, you will. Anyway, here's the thing. It's -- I don't bring this up, because I want it. I bring it up to warn people...
Glenn Beck is just bug-eyed, poo-throwing crazy. What the hell is it going to take to get this owl-casting of a human being off the air and locked up in an asylum where he belongs?
