    And I'd say that is perhaps unlikely. Nevertheless, it was a common social identifier to liberals, for some reason.

    Beck is an entertainer posing as a political expert. His JOB is to sell advertisements. He does this by putting on a very entertaining show. I do think he is bad for America though. He makes already ignorant and upset people warped with exaggerations and wild connections to "Leftist takeovers". He preaches hate, screams, cries and exaggerates almost everything. I have heard him yell that he wants to kill people with a shovel. Come on. If you think for one second that he has a show on TV that's intention is to better the country or enlighten you your crazy and deserve each other. I hope you put ALLLL your money in priceline gold.

    He is entertaining. I love the school room blackboard. Makes me feel like I am learning something. When he can twist a word to mean some fantastic plot by the democrats I laugh every time.

    I see it like this. They interviewed this body builder once who sold a work out drink. Based upon the picture you assumed you would look like that if you drank it. Nobody seamed to get results so they asked this body builder if it was a Fake product. Turned out he was taking roids like crazy and said "Anyone who thinks I just use those drinks to look like this is a fool." But that's what they were selling the drinks as. Anyone who listens to Beck and thinks what he says is factual or correct is a fool. Anyone who thinks that HE believes what he is saying is a fool. He is an entertainer!!

    I am no pacifist. Though I think that the end of the cold war should have marked reduced spending in military endeavours. I dislike defencests arguments that create an enemy that doesn't exist.

    I agree with this, as well. Do we have enemies? Sure. We never again want to be caught where we were in 1939. Do we need to be afraid of our own shadows? Of course not.

    This doesn't completely exonerate him, but here is how the potato, potatoe thing happened.

    His most famous blunder occurred when he corrected student William Figueroa's correct spelling of "potato " to "potatoe" at an elementary school spelling bee in Trenton, New Jersey on June 15, 1992. Although he was relying on cards provided by the school which included the misspelling, Quayle was widely lambasted for his apparent inability to spell the word "potato". According to his memoirs, Quayle was uncomfortable with the version he gave, but did so because he decided to trust the school's incorrect written materials.

    I always thought Dan Quayle got a bum rap. He wasn't a total moron, just inarticulate.

    Re: Is Glenn Beck a Fake?

    Personally, I do think Glenn Beck is a fake. I don't want to discredit his message, but as an individual I think he is fake. I think he tries to cater to traditional Christian conservatives in order to make money. He's very dramatic, and seems almost like a political charlatan to me. Not that I think everything he says is bad or wrong, but I do believe Beck as an individual is a fake who is manipulating people.
