But this video seems to confirm my suspicions: I really don't think Glenn Beck is going to have a long shelf-life. I don't think he can settle, Rush Limbaugh-like, into a nattering voice of complaint that somehow becomes part of the establishment. When hyperbole is your only weapon, you can only use it for so long before it wears down to a nub. This week, Beck somehow managed to raise the stakes from America's Last Stand to The Man Responsible for America's Death. How much longer before he starts outing secret communists?
For the record, that video is much funnier if you go to Inception Button and press it every time Beck finishes a sentence. It gives things the proper ridiculous sense of foreboding he's looking for.
