    Mad Man: Is Glenn Beck Bad for America? - TIME

    Is Glenn Beck Bad for America? (?!?!?!????)

    When are any of these horse-n-buggy media drips going to ask whether vicious barking whackjobs, like Keith Olberdouche and Randi Rhoads, are bad for America?

    The dude must be seriously horning in on their racket, to get them all riled up like this.

    Of course, it's certain that they have his pic on the cover so people will be repelled from buying that rag, instead of the National Enquirer, at the checkout stands.

    Oh, did I mention...

    GLENN BECK!!

    Carry on! :)

    Just the mention of the name, Glenn Beck, gets the hackels up on all the liberal and progressive kind of dopes. For some reason, and I can't figure out why, they just don't like to be exposed for what they really are. If they are so "right" I wonder why it makes them jumpy to be talked about in a truthful way?

    That cover certainly isn't flattering for him. Keith Olbermann showed a clip the other night of a Glenn Beck meltdown where he was comparing himself to Edward R Murrow.

    Why are the Republican talk show hosts always so extreme and crazy?

    Beck is only bad if people take him serious, he is simply too maudlin, conspiratorial, and off the wall for most people's tastes, but then even a causal view of TV should send shudders down any thoughtful person's spine. Is our nation as dumb as most TV is? Every day I see another story on Jon and Kate, if that ain't bizarre nothing is.

    Beck singlehandedly sunk Van Jones by showing people what Van Jones had said in the past...in Van Jones' own words.Then Beck gave 2 citizens exposure for their expose on ACORN, now ACORN is having their funding stopped.

    Beck is very effective which is why you see the hate and fear by many in regards to Beck. They just dont understand how a nitwit like Beck can have an actual impact the political landscape.

    I think this is why the left fears and loathes him

    Beck made a super dupper funny comment between 6:40 and 7:00 on that video.

    This is one of his "Sane" moments where he actually isn't being wildly sarcastic and out of bounds.

    Right...We can't have anybody horning on the unhunged one's racket, can we??

    I guess you've never listened to Randi Rhoads, Sam Sedar or Al Frankenstein, huh?
