The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

And here I thought it was "Bobby" Brown who was the pimp.

What the heck was this all about?



...and then there's Glen Beck! What we got here folks is your basic Dumb and Dumber.

Makes you wonder why the Libertarian guy didn't run better.

Gosh, Wayne, folks wouldn't want to waste their votes.

Finally got time to watch the clips. Okay, Scott Brown is an idiot.

But Glenn Beck? I struggle to find words to describe his consistent, persistent inanity. To the thesaurus...

Inane: pointless, senseless, empty, vacuous, idiotic, foolish. See ABSURD. Well, those words might fit a piker in the world of inanity like, say, George W. Bush, but...

Isn't there a word that combines and multiplies the meaning of all those quasi-synonyms? That word might come close to describing Glenn Beck. "Egonaniotic?"

How about:
imbecile [ˈɪmbɪˌsiːl -ˌsaɪl]
n
1. (Psychology) a person of very low intelligence (IQ of 25 to 50), usually capable only of guarding himself against danger and of performing simple mechanical tasks under supervision

Bob Newland said...

Obviously incapable of performing simple mechanical tasks. What's the word for someone of negative intelligence quotient?

Glen Beck is no dummy. Neither is Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, or Keith Olberman. They are all just hucksters, trying to sell a product, and they know that outrageousness is what sells the most.

Bob Newland said...

Sorry, Neal, Glenn Beck is a dummy.

Boy, isn't it a good thing that folks like me don't judge you Democrats on folks like Dan Rather, Rachel Maddow and Chris "Obama makes my leg tingle" Matthews?

You can be conservative and think Glen Beck is a dolt.

As for Brown, he's a Republican who won Ted Kennedy's Senate seat. It was almost REQUIRED that he do something utterly stupid.
