    Jon Stewart does a pretty good Glenn impersonation. That one comedian (I can't remember his name)...he does lots of celebrity impersonations....he does George W. Bush really well....grrrr.....he was on Glenn's radio show one day impersonating him and it was HIlarious.

    A perfect way for him to be the middle-man in delivering content. He is taking a cue from his impact on Amazon.com sales. This sounds like a mixture between the Cato Institute (for a political viewpoint) and The Teaching Company (business model).

    Yes, I realize this was a photo shoot. I also realize he's a phony and the crying is just one of his shticks - any good method actor can do this. He's a preacher/actor.

    he use to say it a lot more frequently on Radio, I haven't heard him say it in awhile though. Frankly I think he's going a bit down hill these past few years, he makes bigger leaps with less evidence. I still think he's a worth a listen to though.

    I think it's unfair to call a man a phony without backing it up with something. How do you know he isn't just an emotional person who believes in what he is doing. If you can find evidence that it is all just an act then I will concede that he is a a jerk just doing it for the money, but until then I find your statement to just be an uninformed potshot.

    Well then he should join Stewart and Colbert on Comedy Central if he sees himself as a Rodeo Clown.

    You mean when he cries using Vicks? He uses crying to show emotion, but it is kinda obvious that he is just fake crying.

    Again, you do know the difference between a photo shoot making fun of himself being an emotional person and actually being emotional, right? It's clearly not fake. I've been listening to him on the radio for years and he's ALWAYS been a highly emotional person. Why is that so hard to believe?

    It isn't hard to believe some one being emotional because I am as well. But when he did that one show with the We the People screen behind him and he acts like he is going to start crying then. It was obvious he was fake crying to try and convince his audience that he loves his country. There is a difference between being emotional and trying to act like you are emotional and he seems to go between the two.
