It’s Kristol Clear That Beck Is Nuts

I, for one, am enjoying the Bill Kristol / Glenn Beck feud:

Last week, Fox News’ Glenn Beck launched a week-long effort to explain developments in Egypt as only he can. The deranged media personality cooked up truly bizarre conspiracy theories — even by his standards…

Over the weekend, The Weekly Standard’s William Kristol, a Fox News contributor, had seen enough. “[H]ysteria is not a sign of health,” Kristol wrote in a new column. “When Glenn Beck rants about the caliphate taking over the Middle East from Morocco to the Philippines, and lists (invents?) the connections between caliphate-promoters and the American left, he brings to mind no one so much as Robert Welch and the John Birch Society. He’s marginalizing himself, just as his predecessors did back in the early 1960s.”

Now let’s face it — Glenn Beck’s behavior has to be pretty crazy for a neoconservative like Kristol to write that sort of critique. And that brings me to my latest limerick:

It’s Kristol Clear That Beck Is Nuts
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Bill Kristol said Beck’s gone too far,
Which means Glenn’s scaled a very high bar.
Cuz when Bill says enough
To a wingnut, that’s rough.
Yes, Glenn’s sanity’s way under par.

    Love it. These Tea party fools are even embarrassing those on the right who still have half their brains intact. Here’s my quasi limerick:

    Billy Kristol versus Glenn Beck?
    It’s gone too far, but what the heck.
    Who’s gonna be king of the right?
    Can’t wait to see that fight.
    Party in-fighting, while the nation’s a wreck.
    Seems to me they’re both a, pain in the neck.

  2. Scott says:

    Glenn Beck is a certified nut,
    and a rash on America’s butt.
    He’ll soon blame this crisis,
    on Horus and Isis,
    and financed by the evil King Tut.

  3. Mary Ann says:

    You know , I tend to agree because it’s he
    that got the tea party started
    by challenging the departed
    and acts as he knew forefathers
    with always a grin that’s farted….

    Thanks for your verse Hansi, Scott, and Mary Ann!

    When Glenn brought in the rubes, all the pols
    On the right declared they loved him. He’s got balls!
    But now, a liability,
    They seek deniability
    Fingers crossed, they mug, “Glenn who?,” when he calls.
