Could Glenn Beck, another morally bankrupt non-prophet of the Right max out the conservative movement's remaining capital?

I haven't a clue as to whether or not "populist" conservative patriarchs like Rush Limbaugh or Bill O'Reilly are thinking that maybe it's time they move over. But it wouldn't surprise me to find out that Father Charles Coughlin -- who's Jew-baiting, conspiracy-driven populism ruled radio airwaves during the 1930's, and P.T. Barnum, originator of the phrase: "There's a sucker born every minute" -- may be somewhere rolling over.

But regardless of the manner in which Coughlin and Barnum are spending their eternities in whatever region of the afterlife they now reside, what de facto Republican Party "boss" Limbaugh, Fox News' ever-vigilant "culture warrior," O'Reilly, and all the other big money shills of the establishment conservative movement still here on earth need to do is watch their backs. They face the growing prospect that the historical magnitude of their rabble-rousing legacies -- and perhaps more disastrous, the size of their bank accounts -- will soon be seriously diminished. What's worse, those professional legacies and that seemingly limitless earning potential could be undone by a recovering drug and alcohol addict turned garden-variety messianic, God-channeling political huckster.

In short; one of their own.

There are many reasons why the spiritually connective clarity and apocalypse now tonality to the alarm used by Glenn Beck to draw so much attention to himself should, at this point, be a source of concern, not only to Beck's detractors on the left, but also to the entire echo chamber of coin-operated right-wingers who over the years have made handsome livings as morally-disingenuous and philosophically-opportunistic "professional" conservatives.
