…and I was like “Glen Beck, are you crazy?”

I’m so glad that Beck (Glenn the Crazy Right Wing Tea Party* Conspiracy Theorist, I mean, not those other imposters) has decided to reappear in the news for being a moron. I missed him…

Or not. I actually think life was better without this stupidity.

“There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler youth, or, whatever. I mean, who does a camp for kids that’s all about politics. Disturbing,”

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a person stick their foot in their mouth so thoroughly. You see, political camps for kids ARE disturbing.

Oh look, the Tea Party have political summer camps for kids.

Specifically, the branch that he is aligned with. THAT HE STARTED!

One must wonder if he just has the  memory of a goldfish, or if he’s doing this on purpose.

As a side note, as I was considering writing this very post, Ed Brayton got there first.** In true, gentlemanly fashion, then, I must urge you to look at his post too.

— EDIT —

And Pharyngula too. He really doesn’t need a link, but here he is.

* What? TV Tropes no longer has a trope for strawman political? What madness is this?

** Fuck his being more timely than me!!! [beat] Glad I managed to hold that profanity back ’til the footnotes.
