Nobody does it better than Beckistan.

Call me crazy, well, I am on the 12-step program as a recovering liberal and still have the shakes from kool-aid withdrawl. Sipping tea helps, but still crave a little spine…..and cajones. And Donald, you have BIG ones. I like that in a leader and protector, probably why I married a Marine 42 years ago. Mama Grizzlies have them too. Unfortunately, the left and their lapdog media has an adversion to ballsy truth tellers. Ask Glenn Beck :)
I did enjoy this interview with Billo, not many people can out-O’Reilly O’Reilly. He should be your running mate, because nobody should run our country who doesn’t love her. While Bill likes to play Devil’s Advocate, his body language was bursting in agreement, most fun 10 minutes I’ve spent online in a long time. Run, Donald, please. I’m so sick of politicians.
MYSTERY OF THE DAY: What’s the Left gain by lying about the Glenn Beck Restoring Honor Rally attendance? (via HillBuzz)
The boyz are on fire! Good question, I was there too. If you count the people stranded at the Metro stations that morning, I believe it was a cool million too. If you count the buses still dropping off people near the monument…when the rally was over….might have been more? As for the Colbert-Stewart rally, I’m guessing about 15k white college students? Too high?
More info: Restoring Honor
Not so much Tea Party as honoring troops for our freedoms. Glenn and Sarah will be speaking. At the feet of Lincoln. On the anniversary of MLK’s “I Have A Dream” speech. ‘Nuf said :)
And for everything else that is our America, the Grand Pooh Bah of Tea Party events:

If you don’t think your government is listening to you, you need to be at this one! I went last year and met a lot of Democrats (snork) as well as first time activists. If you don’t think the media is reporting fairly, you need to be at this one especially! With your sign.
You can see the entire sketch at the NBC website. Also, in case NBC scrubbs the youtube above.
Inspired by Glenn Beck’s Arguing with Idiots.
To be fair, I had to look up how to spell
Burkly, Berkly, Birkley, Berkeley
It’s ON !
Keith’s post at Daily Kos:
I don’t know why I’ve got this phrasing in my head, but: Find everything you can about Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Roger Ailes.
No, even now, I refuse to go all caps.
No, sending me links to the last two Countdowns with my own de-constructions of his biblical vision quality Communist/Fascist/Socialist/Zimbalist art at Rockefeller Center (where, curiously, he works, Comrade) doesn’t count. Nor does sending me links to specious inappropriate point-underscoring prove-you’re-innocent made-up rumors.
Tuesday we will expand this to the television audience and have a dedicated email address to accept leads, tips, contacts, on Beck, his radio producer Burguiere, and the chief of his tv enablers, Ailes (even though Ailes’ power was desperately undercut when he failed to pull off his phony “truce” push).
This becomes necessary after this in order to prove various cliches about goose and gander, and to remind everybody to walk softly and carry a big popsicle, and most particularly to save this nation from the Oligarhy of The Stupid.
I keep wondering if somewhere somebody named Ollie Garhey thinks he’s in charge now. Or, even more entertainingly and societally satisfying, if somebody named Ali Garhi does.
Despite the worn-out snark above, I am in earnest here.
Ok, I’m lazy, so I used wiki to get Keith started on his kill the messenger campaign:
Beck was born in Mount Vernon, Washington in February 1964, and raised a Roman Catholic. His mother and one of his brothers committed suicide and a sibling had a fatal heart attack. He graduated from Sehome High School in Bellingham, Washington in 1982.
A 2007 profile in “LDS Living” magazine provides a comprehensive history of Beck’s early life and career in radio, and states that his first significant exposure to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came at age 18 when, after graduating from high school, he moved from Washington to Salt Lake City, Utah and shared an apartment with a former Mormon missionary. The article goes on to say that his first marriage ended in divorce at age 30 (1994). He and his second wife, Tania, joined the church in October 1999, partly at the urging of his eldest daughter, Mary, who has cerebral palsy.
Beck was admitted to a special program for non-traditional students at Yale University while he was working for a New Haven-area radio station, having received at least one of his recommendations from Senator Joe Lieberman. During this time Beck took a single theology class, dropping out around the time of his divorce.
Beck is a self-described recovering alcoholic and drug addict. He also has a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  He and his first wife divorced amid his struggle with substance abuse. Beck cites the help of Alcoholics Anonymous in his sobriety, and he eventually converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which teaches against the consumption of alcohol.
By his first marriage, Beck has two teenage daughters, Hannah and Mary. With his second wife, Tania, he has two children, Raphe and Cheyenne. He is currently a resident of New Canaan, Connecticut, where, in May of 2008, Beck applied for a special permit to place a six foot wall around his home citing “security concerns” and “angry audiences.”
So much more on the web, love him or hate him, Glenn is brutally honest about his past. It’s part of his addiction recovery and so much more than we know about the Obamas :)
For Glenn, yet another of my corny youtubey inspirations, enjoy:
We have your back !
It means you’ve been paying attention ! And you’re probably angry and tired of being called a RACIST !
….but it’s certainly turning my old liberal friends into “rabid left-wingnuts” !
For instance, Mean Janeane Garofalo and Mike “I hope Glenn Beck commits suicide” Malloy. What happened to my compassionate friends? No bleeding hearts here, they want to tear mine out and stomp on it. Is this how they see us?
Had enough? Then come up to speed by visiting this Stealth Fusion link which provides Glenn Beck’s show videos from last week and a transcript of all the questions he wants you to ask your representatives.
Allahpundit of Hot Air asks if “you’re in or out?” and muses if Beck could be tapping a possible third party leader……hmmmmmm?
Make your voice count and make sure your questions are answered ! Dissent isn’t only for liberals !
