The less said about Glenn Beck's latest crime against common decency
on August 28, the better. Any kind of exposure given to that man, his followers, and his sophistic ideals, positive or negative, runs the risk of letting another stupid white asshole think s/he is not totally alone and undeserving of love in this world. Personally, I've tried to avoid any coverage of the event, in a half-assed attempt to stick it to Glenn Beck.
In spite of myself, I clicked on this video
by New Left Media, associated with the Huffington Post and it was pretty entertaining. One has to remember that the interviewer speaks to about 15 of the thousands who shambled to the Lincoln Memorial and is probably edited to get the most ignorant, and thus the most entertaining, responses. I've already said too much on this subject.
In a similar vein, let's talk about the old figurehead of ignorant conservatism in our country, former President George W. Bush. Filmed in the greatest city in America, Secret Pants Sketch Comedy asks us the most important question our miserable human cortexes could ever hope to compute: Bush or Batman?
The Bush administration gave us this and Stephen Colbert.
The Obama administration has given us Glenn Beck.
