There is nothing more satisfying than watching a grown man cry. If it comes after a long-winded, poorly conceived rant about some long-winded conspiracy theory, it is even more satisfying. Although even most conservatives feel Glenn Beck’s opinions are unreasonable and way out there, they may still tune into watch his Fox News on their satellite television from satellite dish tv. Antics such as using Jenga to explain the national debt help convey this image.
The short-haired slightly overweight person who can cry on demand may not always make much sense, but I absolutely love whacked out conspiracy theories. If you watch his show, you can easily see him featuring into movies like National Treasure and the Da Vinci code. If you’re a long-time science fiction fan, you can easily see him as a character in the Illuminatus Trilogy or Schroedinger’s Cat.
In the interest of complete honesty, I should mention that I can only take his show for so long. His misunderstanding of net neutrality and what it means irritates me. If he’s going to be right on at least one thing, he could at least look up what the phrase actually means so he can learn why net neutrality is a bad thing.
