try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

And the assumption that they can spell it. And have full possession of their faculties.

A shot of fairness and balance from perhaps the only center-right person who reads your blog. Witness left wing crazy from two people who need to share Beck's cell.

And apparently a whole bunch of teabaggers, as well. Hitler moustaches, that's intelligent. Because of course if Obama's a socialist then he's also a fascist. And up is down and Idaho is Massachusetts.

Garofalo's snark about the brain is silly, but at least it's a joke, albeit a bad one. And she's wrong for painting all Republicans with one brush. The people she's talking about are obviously extremists.

Having said that, I think she is right about most extremists not knowing their historical arse from their elbow (I extend this to most people in general, but that's a rant for another day).

Of course the right wing hasn't become a bunch of knuckle-dragging racists (the teabaggers were definitely a very small minority, and the ones who made Hitler signs an even smaller one), but I wouldn't make book that most of the people at the rallies in the video clip aren't completely clueless about US history, especially what the Boston Tea Party was all about, or even the difference between fascism and socialism (or the fact that under the Nazis Barack Obama would have been overthrown and most likely incinerated).

I actually feel bad for Glenn Beck--not because of his political views at all, but rather because I honestly think he's in the throes of some kind of mental breakdown. It's really sad to watch him decompensate like that on national television. I don't think he needs a padded room, but in my professional opinion, this is a guy who needs to back away from public life, get some rest and maybe think about medication.
