a quick note on what i'm reading
tears of a clown is a must read for anyone sceptical of the tea party movement and it's leader, a madman named glenn. tracing his rise from a morning shock jock to the spokesman of the right wing, dana milbank does a great job of examining beck as a showman. beck's showboating is more for ego gratification and financial gain rather than ethical beliefs. this is very irresponsible considering how close beck comes to inciting his listeners to violence. of course the book details the questionable facts glenn uses to make his points, but really, isn't that a given?
