Anyone can be a target, right? It’s one thing to just be a Fox News Klown, to screech about the end of the world for piles of money and professional laughs. It’s another to target government officials in order to destroy their livelihoods and careers.
Van Jones is gone, not too surprising. Unfortunately, it’s apparently gone to Beck’s head, and he can’t wait to start raising the crosshairs, until he’s ‘killed’ the President.
Send Me Everything You Can Find About Glenn Beck

I don’t know why I’ve got this phrasing in my head, but: Find everything you can about Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Roger Ailes.
No, even now, I refuse to go all caps.
No, sending me links to the last two Countdowns with my own de-constructions of his biblical vision quality Communist/Fascist/Socialist/Zimbalist art at Rockefeller Center (where, curiously, he works, Comrade) doesn’t count. Nor does sending me links to specious inappropriate point-underscoring prove-you’re-innocent made-up rumors.
Tuesday we will expand this to the television audience and have a dedicated email address to accept leads, tips, contacts, on Beck, his radio producer Burguiere, and the chief of his tv enablers, Ailes (even though Ailes’ power was desperately undercut when he failed to pull off his phony “truce” push).
This becomes necessary after this in order to prove various cliches about goose and gander, and to remind everybody to walk softly and carry a big popsicle, and most particularly to save this nation from the Oligarhy of The Stupid.
I keep wondering if somewhere somebody named Ollie Garhey thinks he’s in charge now. Or, even more entertainingly and societally satisfying, if somebody named Ali Garhi does.
Despite the worn-out snark above, I am in earnest here.
MORE…Red State wants to “KO” Keith Olbermann for fighting back:
…So now, in typical Olbermann fashion, he wants to kill the messenger and he’s calling in the troops to do it.
Smear campaign officially commenced.
This goes far beyond true journalism (which is what Beck actually did) into the realm of the dark streets of vengeance. I honestly don’t know how MSNBC can keep Olbermann employed at this point because he is becoming a much larger liability for them with these types of antics. I also refuse to loose (sic) hope that the intellectually honest folks that watch MSNBC will want to put up with this.
I am all for intellectual disagreements, but this is the stuff of amateurs.
‘Amateurs’ would be the liberals, apparently, as Glenn Beck does this shit for a living.
