Thanks to the Mediate blog, for bringing to my attention one of my favorite lines I’ve ever seen on Glenn Beck (and keep in mind, I only see the stuff that’s pointed out for being bats#!t crazy).
Glenn Beck has had a series on the air over the past couple of days discussing how to basically “out” your liberal family during the traditional Thanksgiving gathering. The clip below starts with a woman from the audience discussing how some people get their news from popular shows. Glenn Beck chimes in with the difference between how he presents news and Jon and Stephen present news – “What better way to keep people sheep than making sure, and I’m part of this, making sure people get their news from a comedian? At least I’m giving it in context. I’m trying to make the news entertaining to bring people in, but Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, that’s not news. That’s a monologue. It’s jokes.”
Beck’s guest, Dr. Keith Ablow, then takes the discussion from bizarre to bats#!t by saying: “That’s jokes, it’s entertainment, and it can be a drug. So drugs keep company with denial.” Ablow then goes to compare watching Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to people who are in denial about being alcoholics. ["I can't be an alcoholic, I don't drink during the day!"]
So I feel the need to go ahead and clarify this for anyone who might be wondering: Hello, my name is DB and Stephen Colbert is my drug. [Hi, DB!] Any other Colbert druggies out there?
