The Hand Has Spoken

Glenn Beck with Gas CanI’m increasingly reading the moon-bat online ravings of the unmedicated left. It’s not only entertaining, but it’s good to keep an eye on them.

One recent post on Athensboy’s Blog piqued my interest. He reports that last year Glenn Beck made $32 million dollars. Thirty-two million dollars. To put that in perspective, that’s as if every man, woman, and child in America handed him a dime. Athensboy (if that is his real name) then goes on to quote Beck (from a Forbes interview):

“I could give a flying crap about the political process,” he said. “We’re an entertainment company.”

Well, of course that’s true. If Beck were interested in the political process, then he’d be talking about politics a lot more than he does. And before you write in saying: “But he does talk about politics. A lot.”, know that I’ve anticipated and discarded your premise before you even made it. That’s how smart I am. You see, Beck isn’t talking about politics. He’s talking about patriotism. And America. And how ‘progressives’ are destroying it. And a lot about Karl Marx, oddly.

But that’s off the point. The point is that Beck is right. If Glenn Beck was wrong, then why did we all give him a dime? The free hand of the invisible market has spoken, and it’s spoken 32 million times. I assume it uses sign language. And that its arm is tired.
