I like piled up skeletons as much as the next guy, but watching it for an hour is a little much. Yet that's what Glenn Beck did today, at least as far as I'm aware.
His program was merely background "music" as I perused important things online like Facebook messages from adopted moms who care and erectile dysfunction emails because I care.
And every time I looked up I saw skeletons, and I heard a somber Beck or someone else even somberer telling us about what the Nazis and the Russians did sometime last century as if it were current history.
The worst part is that I don't know whether it was supposed to be a history lesson or it was a dire warning about where Obama is headed. I mean, I know the guy's evil and that the only thing keeping him from besting Hitler and Stalin is our system of government, but I really do think we'll escape him before he murders too many of us..
Oh OK, now were up to Che Guevarra – someone we can agree on. I suppose I'm about to hear how it's the left's embrace of this maniac that ties it all together, and there is some concern there because that embrace arises from sheer ignorance… and the rhymes with "liberal."
But this isn't about gross ignorance, it's about Beck who has become so heavy-handed as to render himself virtually unwatchable. And his ratings seem to show it. Only a few weeks ago he was nearly up to O'Reilly levels, but in the last ratings, he was below Gretchen. That apparently only caught my attention, not Beck's.
C'mon, Glenn, can't we get back to the lighter, more carefree days when you were in favor of global warming and value-added taxes?
Nope… it's on to Mao…
