Hypocrobsfuscation Comedy Hour

From Slate, Glenn Beck is so hot right now.
"On a set that owes something to CNN's experiments in technofuturism and something to the go-go pedestals on Soul Train, Beck natters stridently about the federal reserve and inflation, about the odds of a second civil war, about how the government 'has been betraying the principles of the founders every day.' He rails on and on against media, which hurt my feelings until I remembered that the guy denouncing the media has a show carried in 100 million households. Beck is like Stephen Colbert as understood by someone with no sense of irony, and this explains why Beck giggled a little while playing a clip of Colbert attacking his integrity."

Watch out, Bill-O.
