Great article on Beck! I especially liked how you dissected with such surgical precision his arguments against the proposed government take-over of the health insurance industry. Truly a masterpiece of editorial eloquence.
It was inspiring to read as you so capably exposed his unabashed right wing fascism in his opposition to government take over of private business, and so expertly disemboweled his arguments one by one. Any first year poli sci or history major knows that only Mussolini and the Italian government could make the trains run on time. What, does he think we're stupid? The skill you displayed as an incredibly talented, articulate, highly intelligent and polished wordsmith in pointing out and pulverizing the factual errors and flawed nuances of his arguments should be required reading for aspiring political authors the world over.
But my favorite part was when you so clearly and cleverly demonstrated that the soft, fuzzy-headed, pop-eyed Big Bird with a wet, petulant little mouth that emits a braying, wheedling voice better suited to a phone solicitor than an entertainer, isn't articulate enough to raise liberal blood pressure in the O'Reilly-Coulter tradition. It is so refreshing to see how a reasoned and well thought out point by point disarticulation of the issues so easily trumps the personal insults and hate-speech filled raw meat for the Cro-Magnon Rabid Right, that stupid, graceless, rude, hysterically ill-informed and to all appearances idiot spews each and every day.
A very well written and incredibly insightful piece. Its hard to believe that Beck's brand of low life drop-out hatred pays so much better than your version of factually impenetrable, sophisticated, elegant and highly educated literary style isnt it?
Thanks for the chuckles, Hal. Glad to hear he's not getting to you.
