Pointing out the limitations (and often times hilarity) of your ratings is not a straw man. Next attempt at a witticism please.

Re: Glenn Beck is a genius Part II

Basically, someone out there realized that all the survivalists, gold hoarders, and anti-government wackjobs had finally all aquired cable and decided to tap into thier audience. My father-in-law started raving about Beck to me yesterday.

Looks like grandpa babysitting time will be reduced in the future

I think it pisses O'Reilly off to know Beck is more influential than he is.

I do as well. O'Reilly's biggest mistake is having other people talk on his show. Actually, they show up, Bill asks questions, Bill interrupts the answer and demands a correct answer, Bill interrupts again, Bill talks more, guests are thanked for showing up.

Oh look! More quotes! Did you get all these from Beck's "documentary" on the REAL Che? You sound like all the "experts" on Islam that have suddenly emerged since 9/11 and are just spouting verses from the Quran at random...

About time. I've been dealing with random Bible verse spouting for far too long.

Re: Glenn Beck is a genius Part II

I refer you all to 2 Maccabees 2:18:

For they, said he, trust in their weapons and boldness; but our confidence is in the Almighty who at a Beck can cast down both them that come against us, and also all the world.

I thought for sure you were in trouble for saying it was one isolated quote by a moody 24 year old, and then you come in with this brilliant rebuttal proving crazyronin wrong.

Pshaw! More facts! How stupid!

NOTE: Edited to make up for a stupid mistake.

It's all propaganda from American Imperialist pig-dogs!
If you only knew the truth, you'd love guys like Che, Castro, and Arafat.

I never posted anything about Che Guevara. Do you care to post an example? Perhaps you should edit your post.

Yeah, of course it's all black and white.

Here: Che was an evil commie bastard but not an evil racist commie bastard.

So, he wasn’t racist, he just made several racist comments over the years espousing racist beliefs?
