You know, you've gotta give Glenn Beck credit. He's doing shtick, and doing it well. The crap he spews should be taken no more seriously than, say, WWE wrestling, but it accomplishes basically the same thing: It's morbidly entertaining, like driving past a traffic accident between a Hummer and a semi filled with flaming puppies.
Make no mistake: When the pot stirred by apocalyptic prophets-of-doom like Beck finally reaches a full boil and some edgy lunatic takes a shot at President Obama, you'll know exactly who to direct the blame toward. But for now, his clown routine is essentially good, clean fun -- even if it single-handedly lowers the median IQ in this country by about six points.
Here now is Beck, exhibiting various forms of what Cesca hilariously (and correctly) calls his "punch me" face, and the staff of Morning Joe's, and Stephen Colbert's, reaction to all that unbridled buffoonery.
