As I've said many times in this blog, hatred makes people stupid, so it's really no surprise that the crying pundit, Glen Beck, has been given the very dubious honor of being named "Misinformer of the Year" by Media Matters, the media watchdog. (And lest anyone think it's a strictly left wing media promoter, check out the stuff that they have on Obama!) The stupidity comes when Beck tries to pawn off his misinformation as actual truth. Look at just some of Beck's statements analyzed (and corrected) by Politifact.org and their "truth-o-meter":

Labor union president Andy Stern is "the most frequent visitor" at the White House.
Politifact: Only if you use incomplete, outdated data

Less than 10 percent of Obama's Cabinet appointees "have any experience in the private sector."
Politifact: Most of them do, to varying degrees

"In the health care bill, we're now offering insurance for dogs."

John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, "has proposed forcing abortions and putting sterilants in the drinking water to control population."
Forty-five percent of doctors "say they'll quit" if health reform passes
"Why do we have automatic citizenship upon birth? We're the only country in the world that has it."
When viewing Beck as a baffoon, one can't help but laugh at him and the people who adore him (yes, that's the right word). Mark Twain once said: "Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand." The problem with Beck as I see it, is that we're laughing at the wrong person. Beck enjoys the laughter he gets from his critics. In fact, it energizes him. His ego is still growing and he loves every minute of derision. However, we should be laughing at the people who watch/listen to his shows. They should be cringing with humiliation.

So we should hoist aloft a campaign to make sure that America knows Beck's audience to have the cumulative IQ of a dead flashlight battery. We should have SNL sketches devoted to idiots watching Glen Beck. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert should devote whole segments on Glen Beck supporters with misspelled signs, interviews with illiterate Beckies across the country, and special features about how some of them are paying $500 a drop for Beck's tears (Vicks Vaporub not included).


Nah, it won't float. Why not? Because Beckies transcend humiliation: they are too stupid to even surmise that someone is laughing at them.

So what should we do with this large crowd (according to his ratings) of idiots?

The King of Fools Has Been Crowned! Long Live The King!!!

There is nothing we can do, except ... cry.
