Truth is Stranger Than Fiction Dept.

 

Stephen Colbert: (On the danger of bears) "Bears are soulless, godless, rampaging killing machines. For years, ravenous bears have had free reign to use our woods as their personal latrine, protected by their 'endangered' status."

Glenn Beck: (On the postives of polar bear extinction) "They eat people! For the love of Pete, they're big, angry bears. They eat people. Not that I say we go out and kill all of them, but I mean, it doesn't seem to be a problem here." Think Progress

We really do live in a post-irony society and I respect people like Colbert and Jon Stewart for being able to squeeze what they can out of the absurd stuff on our t.v.

I'm still trying to figure out how Glenn "The Walking Talking Bucket-O'-Chum" Blech manages to get air time. His audience has too be some of the most pissy-pant whiteys on the planet.

Oh, and people eat people too. Maybe Glenn could use that fact to explain why murder and genocide are really no big deal.

I listen to Beck for a few minutes every day just to hear exactly what idiotic thing he'll say next, but I change the station after 10 minutes or so because it's all I can stand. He's possibly the stupidest commentator in any medium.

I think my father watches morons like Beck. It would explain some of the arguments he and I get into these days.

I'm so ashamed.

Dean Wormer: I agree. The jokes just write themselves.

Spirula: I think that Glenn Beck is actually one of the lowest rated news shows on the air. He also has a radio show with poor ratings. I think that his corporate bosses just likes him, despite his poor audience appeal.

CDP: Yes! I listen to him sometimes too, but not for long! He is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Dave The Angry Rhode Islander: I hoe not! THe poor polar bear would get indigestion. ;o)

Distributorcap: Yes - In a cage!

The Ardent Thread: It could be worse - You could be related to Glenn Beck! Now there is a scary thought...

He would probably blame them for 911.
