    • Donald Trump: Hair Liar
      I have a hellacious cold today so thoughtful analysis is beyond me. I am, however, almost as obsessed with the Insult Comedian’s weird hairdo as he is. The folks at Gawker have done the definitive investigation into the Donald’s hair and have discovered that it’s an elaborate weave. If he didn’t spend all his time […]

    • Peter Thiel’s Attack On Gawker Is Not Abuse of Wealth
      So, some years ago, Gawker outed Peter Thiel as gay.  To the best of my knowledge there was no public interest case to be made: Thiel was not funding anti-gay initiatives or some such. They also published Hulk Hogan’s sex tape and did various other scummy things. Thiel, being a billionaire, decided to take them […]

You make it sound like a *bad* thing, Glenn

Glenn Beck embellishes his persecution complex with fantasies that the government (the FCC) and the media are going to shut him up.

Oh, if only.  It would be every liberal’s wet dream to shut up charlatans, liars and bullies like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.  If only liberals had the market share that those two manipulative con artists had.  What we need is a little muscular liberalism to poke these guys in the eyes and dare them to retaliate.  Alas, we are only now beginning to get angry at all the crap they’ve pulled in the last couple of decades.

Butcha know, we’re the kind of people who believe you should be able to say whatever you want except “fire!” in a crowded theater.  In my humble opinion, the right wing nutjobs like Glenn have been doing just that, inducing fear and panic in average people with their irrationality and lies.

I’d be happy if the FCC cited and fined him for lying all the time.  Surely Glenn could get onboard with that, right?  Why don’t we ask him?  Is it OK to lie to people in order to get them to feel anxious, fearful and willing to do just about anything to protect themselves from non-existent threats?

Glenn can relax.  Congress and this White House are incapable of making him honest.
