"Oligarh(y)"

.

Um... WTF is an "Oligarhy"? Can Fox not even afford free interns and copies of Micosoft Word, if for nothing else but the spell-checker?



My opinion: most people watching Glenn Beck can't spell anyway, so they probably figured "why not?" I'd also bet $100 cold, hard cash that if you random-polled 1000 Fox News viewers, 99% would not be able to define what an "oligarchy" is (hint: it's "a form of government in which power effectively rests with a small elite segment of society distinguished by royal, wealth, intellectual, family, military or religious hegemony")...

...but I bet they'd say they were "a'skeered' of it.

Also... in regards to his little rant at the end about "I'm tired of being a sheep... I'm tired of being pushed around!"

Um. Last I checked, this ass-hat owns a palatial $4.25M manor estate, (hat tip: HuffPo for the link) and enjoys the protections of the 1st Amendment, which allows complete and total tools like this to bilk gullable right-wing nimrods. Oh well... enjoy that house while you can, Glenn, because we all know where this is headed. Personally, I can't wait until Beck joins the likes of Morton Downey Jr. (meaning: he drops of the face of the earth, not dies from lung cancer...)

Glenn Beck, he setup the liberals and watched you take it, hook line and sinker.

Why is it that EVERY time someone accuses me of being a "liberal" (as if that's a dirty word or something), it's anonymously? See... if I'm going to call people names or tell them that I think they're wrong, I have the courage to put my name to it. Nothing says "I have the courage of my convictions" like hiding behind internet anonymity, huh?

Beck is a festering carbuncle on the rump of American of the body politic. I bet he can't spell the word sedition either. His nightly psychotic episodes and crying jags would tip off anyone who has a robust family tree and not just a wreathe.
