    He does get some sympathetic words from Lib blogger Steve Benen, though:

    Well, let's ponder that stupid question. " What if?"

    IF it is Mr. Beck, now, with a "tax accident," then at least HE, unlike our Treasury Secretary, is not a public official.

    Of course, on the brighter side, IF it is true, Beck now would meet the apparent MINIMUM requirement for eligibility in the Obama Administration for a Cabinet post.

    Did Obama offer Beck a position in his administration?

    No, but maybe Beck shouldn't be trusted, either. Maybe he also thinks he's better than anyone else.

    That's how he painted the people he trashed on his show, after all.

    That's pretty funny.

    Of course, the laughter doesn't cover up Beck's hypocrisy but funny nonetheless.

    If you don't trust Beck then don't watch his show or buy his books...

    I have not delved into the Beck tax issue. It is clearly a possibility that he has been hypocritical. But if he did have a tax "accident," that does not necessarily invalidate his criticisms of guys like Geithner. Sometimes accidents actually do happen. Sometimes the claim of "accident" is itself bogus.
