    This made me chuckle.

    It's Glenn Beck at his best. He basically says that America would never accept money from a man like Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud, who offered a donation after 9/11.

    He seems to forget that Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud is News Corporation's second biggest shareholder. So, there is a certain degree of irony in his condemnation of the man.

    Is it possible that Glenn Beck's entire career is a piece of performance art mirroring his life with Howard Beale's?

    I have a friend who is a big Glenn Beck fan. He says that everything Beck says is true, that it Beck were lying Obama wouldn't be pressuring his sponsors, that if I watched the entire show, I'd actually think he made sense and I'd agree with him.
    Call me closed-minded, but I know everything I want to know about Glenn Beck from watching Jon Stewart make fun of him.

    I haven't watched Glenn Beck since he left CNN -- I don't get Fox's all news station. Then I could take him in small doses. He actually made the odd good point. But towards the end of his time there he started going further and further over the edge -- it looks like since then that he has completely lost touch with reality.

    I'm with HejiraHenry on this.

    I don't think this is the first time he's knocked the Saudi Prince or "government."

    Wonder if he thinks the Jews should just leave Palestine and go back to Poland or Germany? [crossthread]

    I'm not a fan of Beck. I think he's either nuts or a scam artist and a fear monger.

    I don't turn into his radio or tv programs.

    And I've always been offended by the ads for "investment opportunities" and "work at home" jobs that I hear way too often on conservative talk radio.


    The other day I did catch a few minutes of Frank Caliendo being interviewed by Beck on the radio.

    And, while I've never particularly been a fan of Caliendo either (all those TBS promos made me hate him) he was funny, and Beck, to his credit let Caliendo do an impersonation of him.

    He basically mocked him as a paranoid, fear mongering, nut.

    I'm not sure how many other hosts would let a guest do that on their show.

    I just looked and found the clip here if anyone is interested:
