Glenn Beck Is A Shipwreck
The shipwreck that is the S.S. Glenn Beck Show is like one of those automobile accidents that you see on the highway and cannot help but stare at. It is ugly and horrifying and yet somehow mesmerizing also, too (gratuitous Sarah Palin reference intended). The Glenn Beck advertiser boycott continues to build in momentum as sponsors flee his nightly program which airs on the Fox News Network. It has been all down hill for Beck since he said on air that President Barack Obama “is a racist” and has “a deep seeded hatred of white people.” The negative public outcry was tremendous and a number of organizations, most notably, Colorofchange.org, have initiated a consumer boycott of those companies that advertise on his program. To date, more than three dozen major corporations have pulled their advertising from his show with more to follow.
Truth be told, Glenn Beck’s show has been a disaster right from the beginning. How many times have we had to watch as he broke down in tears and cried like a baby? Oh, what the heck, let’s watch again, shall we?
We have also witnessed his recent nightly rants against Health Care Reform on the basis that he believes that the United States has the greatest health care system in the world. You know. if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it. Problem is, just two short years ago when he was on CNN, he had surgery and then claimed that our health care system was garbage. You can watch Glenn Beck And The Amazing Technicolor Flip-Flop, here.
Even Beck himself now seems resigned to the fact that his show is an absurdity that will probably be canceled by Fox News. This was made evident during his on-air rambling diatribe the other night in which he acknowledged the possibility of his dismissal and told us of his future plans. Shall we have a look see?
Bye – bye, Becky boy.

(sung to the Eagles song “Desperado”)
Desperado, you better come to your senses
Your racist offenses, so public now
Oh, you’re a hard one
But this will be your last season
The Fox boys are teasin’ you
Your show’s all done now
After your unseemly cryin’, boy
We knew you were unstable
We have all seen you fall apart on your set
Now it seems to me, you don’t bring
One sane sentence to the table
But what could one expect from crazy Glenn Beck
Desperado, you better fetch that old plunger
You’ll soon be flushed under that porcelain throne
Your kingdom, your kingdom fell and it’s not all that shocking
You just kept on talking till you were all alone
Will your deep dark soul hibernate in slime?
Your name, Glenn Beck, constitutes a crime
As does most everything that you say
Your sponsors all fleeing your show
Ain’t it funny as we watch them go away?
Desperado, You’ve shown us all what nonsense is
The prevailing sense is, you only hate
Your tears are rainin’, cuz you know nobody loves you
The Lord in Heaven up above you
(heaven up above you)
The Lord in Heaven up above you will decide your fate
