Keep Beck on the Air
The best reason to keep Beck on the tube, though, is his headline-grabbing absurdity. Reasonable conservatives and independents may not watch his show, but the mainstream media--always on the lookout for outrageousness--make sure that Beck's latest "expose' of FEMA concentration camps" or his encouraging oil companies to "stand peacefully against Obama" are fresh in people's minds.
As the most visible face of the New Republican (read:Tea) Party, it is imperative that Beck's latest outrages continue to be fresh in the minds of independents and embarrassed Republicans, especially at voting time.
The isolated cases of alleged Beck-inspired violence wouldn't hold a candle to what the world would be in for if Beck's breed of Republicans were ever voted into power.
