What if Glenn "90 % ‘Chick’ in that Category" Beck was a Liberal?

Beck calls Katrina victims scumbags:

Less than 40-years ago, presidential candidate Edmund Muskie was driven out of the U.S. presidential race for choking up briefly when he came to the defense of his wife, Jane Muskie. Today, that same incident might score him some political points, however, even today, considering Muskie's liberal politics, anything close to Beck's waterworks...curtains!

So, what if the weepy, Fox News host, Glenn "I love America" Beck hosted his show on MSNBC? And rather than exhibit his faux vulnerability over sentimental patriotic symbolism, he broke down over...oh, I don't know...the one in five American children who live in poverty; gay children and teens who commit suicide; people, sick and dying without health care; the chronically unemployed...?

Something tells me, Beck wouldn't be the only one referring to himself as  "90 % ‘chick’ in that category" regarding his "biologically determined" tears.  No, if Beck was a liberal, his displays of "pure" feeling that he uses to trump all reason and logic, in order to spread his politics, would surely crash and burn. 

Remember, Beck was a former disc jockey,  and radio host, who tearlessly trash-talked the very things that turn him into a sobbing mess today, yet his cheap theatrics and sentimental monologue works like a charm on angry, and maybe not-so educated American citizens.
When you are rioting for these tickets, or these ATM cards, the second thing that came to mind was -- and this is horrible to say, and I wonder if I'm alone in this -- you know it took me about a year to start hating the 9-11 victims' families? Took me about a year. And I had such compassion for them, and I really wanted to help them, and I was behind, you know, "Let's give them money, let's get this started." All of this stuff. And I really didn't -- of the 3,000 victims' families, I don't hate all of them. Probably about 10 of them. And when I see a 9-11 victim family on television, or whatever, I'm just like, "Oh shut up!" I'm so sick of them because they're always complaining. And we did our best for them. And, again, it's only about 10.

But the second thought I had when I saw these people and they had to shut down the Astrodome and lock it down, I thought: I didn't think I could hate victims faster than the 9-11 victims. These guys -- you know it's really sad. We're not hearing anything about Mississippi. We're not hearing anything about Alabama. We're hearing about the victims in New Orleans. This is a 90,000-square-mile disaster site, New Orleans is 181 square miles. A hundred and -- 0.2 percent of the disaster area is New Orleans! And that's all we're hearing about, are the people in New Orleans. Those are the only ones we're seeing on television are the scumbags -- and again, it's not all the people in New Orleans. Most of the people in New Orleans got out! It's just a small percentage of those who were left in New Orleans, or who decided to stay in New Orleans, and they're getting all the attention. It's exactly like the 9-11 victims' families. There's about 10 of them that are spoiling it for everybody.-- Glen Beck
Even though Beck claims otherwise, vicious personal attacks on his "enemies" and their families are very common:

* retaliated against a rival radio host by calling the rival's wife and mocking her for having a miscarriage, on the air.
* enumerated the various people, including Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), that he wanted to "beat to death with a shovel."
* reportedly attacked Terri Schiavo's husband, Michael -- after he had previously run segments mocking Terri's condition -- as a "murderer" who sired two "bastard" children
* attacked Katrina victims as "scumbags," adding "I didn't think I could hate victims faster than the 9-11 victims."
* asks if Obama is the Anti-Christ.
* resorted to "vicious personal assaults on fellow radio hosts," including lobbing "exceedingly cruel, pointless" "fat jokes" aimed at an overweight rival host during his time as a DJ in Louisville, Kentucky.
* attacks President Obama's 11-year-old daughter, Malia Obama
* mocked Obama's aunt's "limp."
* attacked Obama's parents
* attacks Michelle Obama

So, just how does Glenn Beck get himself so weepy for the cameras? Well, Vicks Vaporub is one method.  In fact, he must use this tear-making agent so much he's becoming immune. He said, "I think it's getting used to it -- my eyes are getting used to it."


"I'm turning into a frickin' televangelist."


How does he get people to drink the kool-aid?  He's not even that good... he needs some serious acting lessons.

As Ingrid Bergman once said, “It is not whether you really cry. It’s whether the audience thinks you are crying.”

In Beck’s case, it’s that and whether people are talking about whether you are really crying.It's all about the attention with Beck.
