"Only in America can you make that much money crying."
(And From Having Vick's Vaporub applied under your eyes!)

Glenn Beck has spawned a new wave of pejoratives as well as bon mots. Some of them are worth repeating.

"High Priest of the paranoid style."

"Glenn Beck and reality do not mix well."

"Simply put: Glenn Beck is a modern day demagogue who spews lies and misinformation, fosters racism, hate and fear and whips all of this into a witches brew of anger that is divisive, destructive and pollutes healthy discourse and clouds the future of this country."

"If they're giving Glenn Beck the key to the city, they should change the locks."

"...as inchoate and paranoid as that hawked by Father Coughlin during the Great Depression and George Wallace in the late 1960s."

Comparing Glenn Beck to Rachel Maddow is like comparing Bozo the Clown to Einstein.

Perfidiously obnoxious and superficial.


Then there are those comments which are banal, but succinct:

Whiny douchebag.

Please keep in mind that some of the above comments were from own his home town!

Groups have demonstrated on the streets and in city council meetings over the conservative commentator's visit. Petitions have been collected calling on the cancellation of the visit. A small business owner put up a sign that says: "Glenn Beck & Hatred not welcome here." And the leader of a nearby city has offered the key to his city to Jon Stewart in sort of a mayoral rebuttal.

Of course, we all have our reasons for hating Glenn Beck and I have mine: I've come to the realization that I don't REALLY hate Glenn Beck. It's just that I've grown to be allergic to him.

This isn't silly, so please hear me out:
