A Political Preacher?

Am I the only one that thinks that Glenn Beck is insane? Okay either mean or insane or maybe just another insincere noise machine like the TV evangelical preachers who spout all sorts of fiction and then beg their viewers to send them money.

Beck doesn’t do his performance and ask his viewers to send money, he doesn’t have to because the bigger his viewing audience, the better his ratings, the more money FOX gives him.

I am betting that before long there will be talk of drafting him for President for 2012. And it scares the hell out of me that there might be just enough people in this country who would want to do that.

I wish they would bring back the Jerry Springer show so that Beck’s followers, the tea party cult, could get back to doing what they used to do, sitting on the couch and cheering for one of their own that Jerry would often bring on his show.

Beck for Prez. would be even better for the Dems than Sarah Palin.

Glenn Beck is stark raving mad. He makes lunatics look like calm, rational people. He makes Rush Limbaugh sound like the voice of reason. He wouldn't last 8 seconds in a legitimate campaign.

As Bryan over at Why Now? pointed out even stranger is that Beck is railing against socialism while using classic socialist iconography for his campaign...the raised fist.
But yes, he is obviously insane and we can be glad that the campaign against his advertisers by ColorOfChange is working.

Jerry Springer never left the airwaves.

There are competing theories about Glenn Beck. There are those who think he's insane, and those who think he's stupid. And before anyone says "Well, he couldn't be stupid - look how much money he's making", remember that this logic applies just as easily if you call him insane.

But he could be both stupid and insane. The two conditions are not mutually exclusive, and it would explain his particular brand of stupidity/insanity.

My definition of stupid is not using the mind you have. If someone is insane, he gets a pass on being stupid, since insanity means your mind isn't functioning properly.

Beck does seem to be able to get away with anything he does.
