Glenn Beck’s brutal, hateful routine

WASHINGTON – After MSNBC let Keith Olbermann go, Glenn Beck couldn’t resist celebrating. “Keith Olbermann is the biggest pain in the ass in the world,” he judged.

  1. Glenn Beck has mental issues, obviously. His pretentious chalkboard, the pointer he uses, his pretend teacher affect, all suggest the man has grandiose ideas about his own importance. First, that he is the Teacher of America. Second, that he is The Nation’s Teacher of Religion. His words are chosen with care and he apparently thinks that extended pauses between his key words will lend more credence to whatever he says. Finally, his blatant narcissism even suggests that he believes that he is The Nation’s Great Savior. Too bad so many believe this buffoon and his rants. He is dangerous because he has so many blind, dazed followers. If he is anything, he is The Nation’s Cult Leader, much like Jim Jones and David Koresh.
