Glenn Beck Is Out-FOXed Again

The crying man-baby known as Glenn Beck has been outfoxed by White House communications director Anita Dunn once again. Like the pied piper, Dunn led the Fox News host through a crying tirade and over the cliff of sanity once again this week. On his show, Beck played a portion of a video clip of Dunn wherein she stated, “”the third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers: Mao Tse-tung and Mother Theresa – not often coupled with each other, but the two people I turn to most…” Of course, Beck did not provide the entire quote because that would have diminished his argument that Dunn, and by association the entire Obama administration, are radical communist sympathizers. The rest of the quote was, “to basically deliver a simple point which is ‘you’re going to make choices; you’re going to challenge; you’re going to say why not; you’re going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before.” It is obvious from the context of the entire quote that the message that people will be challenged to solve problems and create solutions is not such a radical communist idea, but Beck’s selective editing served to hide the truth. As usual.

Today however on CNN, Dunn fired back at Beck. First she said, “The use of the phrase ‘favorite political philosophers’ was intended as irony, but clearly the effort fell flat — at least with a certain Fox commentator whose sense of irony may be missing.” She then revealed the fact that, “The Mao quote is one I picked up from the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater from something I read in the late 1980s, so I hope I don’t get my progressive friends mad at me.” CNN also pointed out that Republicans Newt Gingrich, a frequent Fox News contributor and Karl Rove also have quoted Mao. Where was Beck’s angst on those ocassions? Sorry Glenn, but Anita Dunn says, “checkmate.”

(sung to the Beatles song, “The Fool On The Hill”)

Day after day
He gives us a chill
Glenn Beck is crying again
Let’s watch his eyes start to fill

And nobody wants to know him
They can see that he’s just a fool
And he has not one good answer
Beck’s the fool who knows nil

Nita Dunn took him down
And Glenn’s face grew bright red
As his head spins around

Glenn’s head today,
Filled up with sound
Beck’s head hears a thousand voices
Screaming nonsense so loud

Everybody wants to jeer him
For the weeping that he does fake
Yet Glenn never seems to notice
Beck’s the fool who knows nil

He’s a dim-witted clown
In need of some strong meds
Beck’s off to crazy-town

(musical interlude)

And nobody seems to like him
It looks like he’s back on the booze
Or maybe he’s back drug dealing
Beck’s the fool who knows nil

He’s beginning to drown
And his sponsors have fled
Soon he’ll be not around

Oh, round, an’ round, an’ round, an’ round, an’ round
Nobody listens to him
They know that he’s a fool
They don’t like him
The fool who knows nil

He’s beginning to drown
And his sponsors have fled
Soon he’ll be not around

Oh, round, an’ round, an’ round, an’ round
Oh …
