Beck’s Finally Lost It

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…

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Your second paragraph made me LOL… I believe today's history lesson is a re-run from back in the day when he was trying to get Mrs. (my favorite philosopher is Chairman Mao) Dunn to call him.

    I'm glad you laughed, but the truth is that I'm so repulsed by that and so many other ads now that I almost can't stand it anymore. Even ones for medicine are disgusting. Have you seen the one for anti-gas, Aciphex? ACIPHEX? Are you kiddin' me?

  3. Darcy says:

    LOL– yes. I know what you mean. There was another doozie on the other day but I can't remember what they called it just now. I'll take notes next time.

    lol. I think I've watched all of 5 minutes of Beck. More frequently I've listened to him in the wee hours on the radio during insomniac spells. He can come across heavy-handed. No one beats Rush IMHO.
