TLP: In Case You Didn't Already Think Glenn Beck Was Irrelevant

Whatever it was Glenn Beck went off to do when he left his rant room over at Fox News Channel must not be working out so well. Witness this cry (sorry, not literally) for attention.

Huffington Post:
Glenn Beck harshly criticized GOP candidate Ron Paul Wednesday night, when the talk show host appeared on Bill O'Reilly's Fox News show.

Beck was referring to Paul's answers on foreign policy during Monday night's Republican primary debate. Beck told O'Reilly that Paul really needed to "shhh, shhh, on foreign policy." Beck said that Paul should keep his points to himself, and sounded "a little like Osama Bin Laden at times."

"It's not America's fault," Beck told O'Reilly. "Have we played a role in making things worse?...Yeah, I think we have...but it's not America's fault, and I don't think Ron gets that."

O'Reilly agreed with the latter part of Beck's statement and said, "No he doesn't get it, and he hasn't ever gotten it, and he never will get it, so we're going to discount him."
Ron Paul as Bin Laden? Huh. Beck's off-script; he usually goosesteps Hitler (or your generic beer-hall variety Nazis) out for this sort of thing.

Can we go back to ignoring him now?

The Lazy Paperboy

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

Beck agreed that we've caused things to be worse, but then states America doesn't deserve the backlash?

Gee, that doesn't make sense.

Paul opponents skip any appearance of offering concise arguments against his positions...vitriol and bee ess are stock in trade.
To hell with Beck and he can take O'Really? with him

I don't think Beck has ever been relevant, other than to be loud. I explore that very idea in my book, and came to the conclusion that anyone who likes Beck already liked his ideas, even if they didn't know it yet.

Beck is building his own TV network on the internet and launched with really substantial subscriber base. Are you doing anything close to that?

Beck is more relevant to many more people than your book will be.
