Floor Show



Seriously, could Glenn Beck's show become any more of a circus act?

Here, David Buckner of Columbia University, obviously overcome by all that unadulterated crazy, passes out live on the air.

I'm telling you, it's the fumes from Beck's failed asshole surgery. He needs to start handing gas masks to his guests.

From a medical point of view, guys should really not pass out, it generally indicates something more serious.

Of course in this case he probably just had multiple brain anuerisms from being that close to Glenn.

Either that or hes turning into a zombie, a real possibility in these near apocalyptic times.

I'm looking forward to the gladiatorial matches that will no doubt occur on the show in the future.

I see Beck as a Net & Trident man.

What I wouldn't give for that to happen about 1,000 times more often.

Sotto voce: ("I'm about to pass out.")

"Passing out."

"Gone."

To his credit, Beck didn't try to claim that the Obama administration had poisoned him in retaliation for speaking truth to power regarding toxic treasuries.

Though, give it time...

Whiskey.
Tango.
Foxtrot.

I've noticed before how Beck sucks the life out of a room, but never seen such a dramatic example.

By the way, Beck later reported that Buckner was ok, and had apologized to Beck, who informed his audience that with supreme grace and concern, he had told Buckner that it would be good for ratings. True story.

I've seen my estranged husband do that often enough to guess Buckner is diabetic.

I feel for that guy. I was giving a seminar in Hong Kong one time and between the jetlag/dehydration I almost face planted on the stage.

Luckily, I walked off, composed myself and went back out there but I know that feeling of being in the spot light, and your vision starts to go, your ears buzz, and the you know you don't have much time to go. Pass out or leave. Flop or Flight.

It was probably from shame.

Poor David Buckner. That Beck fellow used up all the air in the room and when hypoxia finally vanquished his flabbergasted guest, the boorish Beck only paused at his cartoonishly simple "Path to Destruction" to extend a limp, sweaty paw and call on the minions to come help.

Prick. Can't even rise to the simplest act of human compassion and common sense and yet has some kind of weird license to hold audiences hostage to the workings of the ant farm of his mind. I am laughing through clenched teeth...
