Beck is so full of **** it hurts to watch him. Even his mannerisms and tone conveys: "I'm full of **** you fools stop believing all the crap I tell you, hahah I'm rich bitch".
I did flip him on this week while sick at home, right after I watched Iron Man 2 on pay per view and was channel surfing.
I felt that renewed pang of shame that people actually watch him and believe that stuff. He's a freaking entertainer, he's like those old televangelists, he's just preaching conservatism.
His self admitted, truthful goal, is to build a successful media empire. He's done really well at this, he's a star in that competition. And it has nothing to do with gathering, analyzing, or conveying, truths about american government or society.
I like Beck from a respect of success, hard work perspective. The guy went for it and got it, and just keeps on running it. That's an american achievement. But his method of fooling people intentionally....
