I know it won’t change a goddamned thing, as fans of Glenn Beck aren’t likely to be persuaded by something like this, but at least it exists on the record. When, many years from now, the radiation-mutated dolphin cockroach hybrid people discover the remains of our collapsed society, at least they’ll know that some of us weren’t stupid. I take some comfort in that thought.

Oh, and speaking of Beck, if you haven’t joined the boycott yet, please do.

    I especially liked the Blair Witch quality of Beck’s post surgical disappointment.

    […] I can’t begin to imagine what they must be thinking. Maybe I’ll give them a call and ask. I wonder if members of the Michigan Chamber, like Beck, believe that Obama plans to arm AmeriCorps students and use them has his private army. Or I wonder if it’s just that they really appreciate his firm stand on issues like healthcare. […]
