Busy Beck

By Ezra Klein

Glenn Beck already has his own university. But now it looks like he's going to need to build his own search engine, too. Poor guy. When does he sleep?

If the answer is "never," that would explain a lot.

well how do you expect him to get sleep when he's got Jason Jones and George Soros in his brain?

He's just jealous that Rick Santorum has his own Google search result.

Think about the crazy man in the park ranting about government conspiracies. Now compare that guy to Beck.

Short a chalkboard and cameras, I really don't see much difference...

If Beck creates an online chalkboard for his search engine, kinda like an Etch-a-Sketch, he'll be set. Then he can sleep.

Initially I thought Glenn Beck's persona was a creation to increase his audience, that he knew what he was saying was outrageous, but he said it for the attention anyway. More recently, though, I've begun to wonder if he is actually psychotic, and the paranoia he is manifesting is genuine.

I assume this is all related to his theory that Google is in bed with the government and can't be trusted. Throw this in with his theory that MTV, the Bush State Department, and others are supporting the eventual Caliphate, and he's plumbing new heights of crazy.

He's channeling Zapp Brannigan:

"What makes a good man go neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?"
