Send in the clowns

Just as the Reagan/Bush(es) spawned Michael Moore, the pendulum is apparently swinging the other way now.

"With a mix of moral lessons, outrage and an apocalyptic view of the future, Mr. Beck, a longtime radio host who jumped to Fox from CNN’s Headline News channel this year, is capturing the feelings of an alienated class of Americans.
In an interview, Mr. Beck, who recently rewatched the 1976 film “Network,” said he identified with the character of Howard Beale, the unhinged TV news anchorman who declares on the air that he is “mad as hell.”
Apparently Glenn Beck, is catering to the ever shrinking Republican base in America and getting the numbers.
His associates concede that it's great television.
Of course you have to shower afterward.
