Okay. I'm all for putting Beck out to pasture.
But seriously I hate it when people overuse Hitler or Nazi. It's kind of what Beck would do.

Yeah that was hilarious, I wasn't aware Beck had slipped that far into whatever affliction he has. He's even driven off my dad, who used to be a huge Beck fan. Now he wonders aloud how long Glenn has been hitting the crack pipe!
But.. but.. he loves this country *sniff* sooooo much! *boohoo* *sniff*

A "journalist" who cries on the air. Methinks Beck is more suitable for the daytime talk show circuit, maybe a slot right before the Tyra Banks show?
Nah, he's a shoe in for the next jimmy swaggart or some other like minded shit licker.
Jimmy Swaggart is exactly who I thought of too.



The sad thing isn't that people like Beck exist, it's that there are so many morons out there willing to hang on their every word.

Sorry Captain Obvious, the failboat has already left the port. :p

I don't why you guys insist on lumping Beck in with in the likes of Mark Levin or Rush.

The few times I've seen Beck he strikes as some guy freaking out about inflation brought about by too much government spending. He reminds me much more of some Ron Paul types.

Beck doesn't strike me somebody who follows political policy etc. I think he's more a populist like O'Rielly, but with some excessive fear of a depreciated dollar and high inflation (instead of the Catholic/social issue agends). I do see him similar to Rush in that they are on the air for 'entertainment value' instead of serious policy discussions.

lmao Colbert is always good. The fact that Chuck Norris actually had something to do with this adds that extra oompf pushing this into epic territory.

Hmm ... douchebags like Beck, Rush, Olberman, and any number of others in regional markets all have followers and I never understood that. I've listened to all of them and rotate between several, just to hear some of it but damned if I can find even one of them that's reasonable, fair, and open minded.
Listen to Thom Hartmann's show (it's archived on the web), and post about that (with examples for your conclusions, preferably). Also try John Rothmann on KGO Radio.

Beck's performance is indicative and quite representative of the condition the repub party is in at the moment.

I'm sure Beck was laughing his ass off as he reviewed his own performance. Well, at least I hope he was. I mean, how can anyone think that all of that came right from his heart? It's as if Murdock himself forced Beck to do that little skit to purposely make an ass out of Beck.

And if Beck really was sincere, then I'm sure there's some Clinic somewhere that can treat his condition. And if the majority of the repub party got goose bumps, a lump in their throats and wistful tears in their eyes from watching Beck's "performance", then I hope there's some kind of cure for them too.

I mean it was hilarious to watch Beck's awful performance. And even funnnier to watch Colbert take it apart.

Can you just imagine what Siskel and Ebert would say about Beck's pitiful flag-waving atttempt at high drama?

I hope Beck gets some kind of citation for that display. I hope he really gets what he deserves.
