    I was fine until he made that girlish scream. That killed me.

    Is he crazy? Perhaps. Personally, I think he just knows that outrage media sells.

    Crazy? Not likely.

    He is carefully calibrated to sound out the official line of the "far-right." Not the fringe far-right, mind you, the actual 'official' location and line of the mainstream (if it’s even possible) far-right. Undoubtedly he rants and raves, to a bemused by stander he looks clinically insane. Yet if one looks closely at his rants, raves, there is a brutal ability to manage to wrangle in intelligent topics, while ‘coincidentally’ does his trademarked verbal adventures without stepping outside carefully sounded out lines.

    He's a special, entirely too orchestrated, brand of crazy. He is so clearly the designated bag-man for claims that conservatives are 'crazy.' Instead of rolling their shoulders or offering up a weakly laugh most conservative can now point to Glenn Beck with a exclamation "I am not crazy! Look at him!" He is an intended icebreaker for the larger mainstream movement, taking the brunt of criticism while making - slowly, surely - the political spectrum gravitate towards his side.

    If nothing else, if he was honestly crazy, he would've said something so outrageous even Fox News couldn't stand behind him.

    I don't know which was more pathetic - the fact that people didn't realize this was an act or the TYT reporter's take on it. Of course this was taken out of context and the TYT reporter using "It's the same way with all conservatives..." clearly displays the obvious bias in the "report" (and I use that term very, very loosely). The poll was obviously slanted as well, but I'd expect no less from "evil non-conservatives"

    Glenn Beck is bat-**** crazy with his A.D.D. and personal body guards: that's why we love him.

    No I do not think Glenn Beck is crazy.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Glenn Beck is absolutely hysterical. Although, I think this video is much funnier:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKyi2qNskJc"]YouTube - FOX NEWS reviews "The Coming Insurrection"[/ame]

    He not only digs himself into a hole from which he can't escape (watch his verbal gymnastics at the end; it's pitiful/funny as hell), but he also gives air time to a pretty pointless piece of literature coming out of the French post-modernist left and also blows it out of proportion by explaining it as some kind of threat to civilization. It's absolutely hilarious!

    If you really think that this pamphlet is anything more than post-modernist crap then you've never actually read it. You can read some of it here and see how crappy and pointless it is.

    Re: How Crazy Is Glenn Beck?

    You have to admit that he does engage in some pretty bizarre behavior. The broadcast of his show on Fox News where he had the separate camera just focusing on his eyes was a little weird. The same goes for when he cries during his shows. I'm sure that most of it is for entertainment purposes, but it is still pretty bizarre.

    No thank you, I'll read ALL OF IT and decide for myself on the matter.
