Requiem for a Rodeo Clown

Good news: Glenn Beck’s FOX News show goes off the air today. Bad news: Beck is considering moving to Texas. Really horrible news if Beck’s serious: he told Gov. Rick Perry he may run for governor if he moves to Texas.

As America’s most beloved tin foil hatter departs from FOX News, the watchdog group Media Matters has prepared a YouTube video of Beck’s greatest hits, including this one:

“Do you really believe that I could, or anybody here at FOX News, could just make things up and remain on the air?”

Well, I guess not, but they gave you waaaaay more than three strikes. Enjoy:

    I love your description of Beck: “America’s most beloved tin foil hatter.” He also is the most hated tin foil hat man. It’s great he is now off TV. It would be even greater if he was off the planet. – Mickey Murphy, RADIO DEMAGOGUES blog

    The really scary thing for us here in the Lone Star State: if any state would be inclined to vote Beck into office it would be Texas. We have a lot of scary, gullible people here.

    Hey, that’s slander against rodeo clowns. Or libel. Too lazy to check a dictionary.

    Oh lord, just what we need, another idiot roaming around with his head up his hind end. Just when things look to be getting better.
