Glenn Beck Is Beyond His Due Date

As we mentioned in our most recent Sunday morning post, Fox News is suffering a pronounced decline in viewership since last Summer. This is really no surprise when one considers that the network is not really a news outlet at all, but rather a thinly veiled propaganda arm of the Republican Party. A person is just as unlikely to get a “fair and balanced” news report from Fox as he would be to get an unbiased report of the benefits of gun control from the National Rifle Association. Perhaps a sizable number of Americans have finally caught on to the fact that they are being spoon-fed a bunch of half-truths, spin, misrepresentations and outright lies by this group of G.O.P./Tea Party lobbyists. Or, maybe the audience has just grown bored with watching the Fox News hosts morph into laughable, cartoonish caricatures of themselves.

The best example of a Fox host’s unpalatable downward spiral is Glenn Beck. Not that Beck should ever have been taken seriously to begin with. After all, his college career lasted all of one course. Not one year or one semester mind you, ONE COURSE. If that were not enough to disqualify him from being considered a qualified news source, consider his multiple marriages and confessed drug and alcohol addiction as an indication of his lack of self control and commitment. Beck is also the guy who went on national television and reported that President Obama has “a deep-seated hatred for white people.” He is clearly unhinged and the “hatred for white people” comment initiated a massive advertiser boycott of his program.

That boycott now seems to have widened in scope so as to include attendees of his public appearances. For instance, APP.com reports that a crowd of only about 700 people, comprised mostly of Tea Party supporters, gathered at Six Flags Great Adventure in Asbury Park, New Jersey last Saturday to help kick off Beck’s “Restoring America” tour. The arena in which the event took place seats over 8,000. This is a far cry from the over 500 quadzillion people that Beck usually claims are at his events. It just may be that Glenn beck’s fifteen minute of fame are finally over.

Let’s hope so.

Please click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with the parody. This one was easy. We didn’t have to tinker too much with the original lyrics. Please enjoy.

(sung to The Guess Who song “Undone”)

Beck’s come undone
He didn’t know what he was headed for
And by the time that Fox shows him the door
It’s much too late

Beck’s come undone
He’s either drinking or he’s getting high
And now his sponsors have gone bye-bye
That is Glenn’s fate

It’s too late
Beck’s gone too far
He’s all but done
Beck’s come undone
Avoids the truth while he shouts out his lies
Now he has to realize
Redemption’s too late

Beck’s come undone
He’s like a little mouse that tries to roar
A TV host that most of us abhor
A victim of his fate

It’s too late
Beck’s no Bill Maher
He is no fun
Beck’s come undone

Too many branches, but not enough Christmas lights
Too many falsehoods and not enough truth
Too many people with too many eyes to see
Too many lies to tell, but not in prime-time

It’s too late
He’s over par
(that was a pun)
Beck’s come undone
(Doe-doe-doe-doe-doe-doe- un doe-doe-doe un doe-doe-doe)
(Doe-doe-doe-doe-doe un doe-doe-doe doe-doe-doe)
(Doe doe-doe-doe doe doe-doe-doe doe doe)

(fake crying break)

It’s too late
Feathered and tarred
He’s dazed and stunned
Beck’s come undone
He didn’t know what he was headed for
And now he’s much worse than the day before
It is too late

Beck’s come undone
He’s like a fountain spewing out just lies
And sometimes he just sits there and cries
Glenn Beck’s character traits

It’s too late
Beck’s gone too far
He’s a no-one
Beck’s come undone
(No no-no-no-no-no-no)
(Doe doe doe-doe)
