Somehow, the world seems a little saner today.
You see? Glenn Beck has already made a difference. There’s still a lot of toxic talk out there, but the number one hate-monger of the airwaves – the man who couldn’t get through even one program without accusing somebody of something evil – the man who thus became Mr. Evil himself – is gone.
The sad thing is, Glenn Beck has a lot of talent. He’s a brilliant talk radio host. A great entertainer. And a compelling TV host. In the history of talk radio and talk TV, nobody has zoomed so high so fast.
But nobody has fallen so fast, either. Because, somewhere along the way, Glenn Beck started to take himself too seriously. He actually believed he was on some kind of divine mission. He lost all regard for the truth. And he began wildly lashing out at anybody he didn’t like.
President Obama was a racist.
George Soros was a Nazi.
Hillary Clinton was a stereotypical bitch.
Until, finally, Fox News decided that Glenn Beck had become so ugly and so crazy they wouldn’t put up with him anymore.
And, believe me, when you’re too crazy and too ugly for Fox News, you’re really crazy and ugly.
Glenn Beck: Good-bye, good riddance!
That’s my parting shot for today.
