    Beck did receive a special VIP tour of the archives, arranged by an as-yet unidentified member of Congress. During that tour, he did get a peek inside the "legislative vault," which isn't open to ordinary visitors. But Archives spokeswoman Susan Cooper insists that Beck didn't lay a finger on any precious documents, much less George Washington’s inaugural address. That would be a major violation of policy. "Those kinds of treasures are only handled by specially trained archival staff," she explains. Cooper acknowledges that someone at the archives did show the document to Beck, but that was the extent of it. Regarding Beck's claim that he held the document, Cooper says that seeing such documents for the first time can be a very emotional experience. "I'm certain it was a figure of speech," she says.

    And that is the point, zona. Where is the outrage when 'your guys' get caught lying? I'd take it more seriously if I saw anything like an unbiased opinion coming from the whining lefties. But you overlook the stream of lies from 'your guys' and howl like fucking banshees about Beck.

    It is laughable... and so I laugh.

    This is stupid. Beck didn't "lie". It's a figure of speech, and when you nitpick like this, you guys are just as bad as the "57 states" people.
