Glenn Beck is Basically an 11 Year Old Bully

How can anyone take this man's political views seriously when this is his mentality:


If I hosted a backyard barbecue and one of the men got drunk and went through that routine, I'd look at his wife with pity and never invite them over again. Glenn Beck did this (presumably) sober and on national television. Unbelievable.

Oh, and here's the PSA he's referring to:


The young, blond woman at the end of the ad who's only showing her shoulders and head is Meghan McCain, the daughter of ex-republican presidential candidate John McCain. Meghan first became well known during her father's presidential campaign, through her blog, McCainblogette.com. She's in her mid-twenties, has an art history degree from Columbia, and these days, is writing for the Daily Beast, where she has written a response. She is a republican. However, Beck and other social conservatives apparently dislike her support for gay rights, birth control, and sex education.

Meghan McCain responded:

"Clearly you have a problem with me, and possibly women in general, but the truth is, it’s 2011 and I heard your show on Fox was canceled," McCain wrote. "Isn’t that an indication that the era of the shock jock pundit is over?...There really is no need to make something like my participation in a skin cancer PSA into a sexist rant about my weight and physical appearance, because I’m going to let you in on a little secret, Glenn: you are the only one who looks bad in this scenario, and at the end of the day you have helped me generate publicity for my skin cancer PSA, a cause that I feel quite passionate about."

and

As a person who is known for his hot body, you must find it easy to judge the weight fluctuations of others, especially young women. If any of your daughters are ever faced with some kind of criticism of their physical appearance or weight, they should call me, because women's body image is another issue I feel passionate about, and have become accustomed to dealing with and speaking with young women about on my college tours."

Good response, Meghan!

Awww, man, I already knew that Glenn Beck was a racist, misogynist, narcissistic enema bag, I was fine with making that judgment from afar. I didn't want to actually have to watch him. Yet I clicked on that video and watched half of it. Bah!

Your comment runs the risk of insulting enema bags everywhere.

I don't feel a bit sorry for his wife. She married the creep and I am sure enjoys his income. I wonder how they both would feel is someone dissected her appearance that way?

Yeah, Beck grosses me out. Especially since he pretends to be fiscally libertarian. I'm so happy his TV show is ending, you have no idea.
