When I watch Beck, I'm torn between a sense of morbid fascination with the odds on when he's going to blow and admiration for his format. While you may disagree with his take on Wilson and the Founding Fathers, who would have ever thought that either topic would become a staple of conversation on 21st Century television. He treats his audience as thought it has half a brain and it's working. That's a heartening development.
