For the 8 of you who didn't already realize Glenn Beck is a preening, ridiculous phony

Here's a video of Beck liberally applying Vicks Vaporub to his face in order to present the illusion of crying. Cause he's SO WORRIED about his country...but not enough to conjure up any real emotion.

If there's one thing on the planet more pathetic than a TV personality crying on camera for no good's that TV personality PRETENDING to cry on camera for no good reason.

This is the first time I've actually come close to feeling badly for Beck. He'll have to live with the existence of this footage for the rest of his life. No amount of money could possibly be worth that.

YOUTUBE GOLD: Serious-minded individual calls for Obama's impeachment over flavored dip ban

How has this been on YouTube for a week without my knowledge? The guy's argument boils down to a few points:

(1) Obama wants to ban flavored dips
(2) Flavored dips are good
(3) Therefore, Obama is gay

But that's not all. He proceeds to

- compare Obama to a monkey, before postulating what might happen if a person gave a monkey a flavored dip.
- defend his right to say racial slurs, on the basis that he's not a Nazi
- argue in favor of legal prostitution
- state that Obama is not an American, but IS a Jew (!)
- salute the Confederate flag because, and I quote, "I'm a true fucking American."

Okay, sure, not all his arguments are all that compelling, but delivering them while pausing frequently to spit in a small plastic container? That is one dynamite rhetorical technique. I'm pretty sure William Jennings Bryant did the same during his most celebrated oratories.
