Glenn Beck and the House of Pain
“Why is Glenn not on the air tonight” is a thought provoking article that popped up yesterday on Glenn’s website. Personally, I am constantly asking why Glenn Beck isn’t always appearing before me in all his weepy glory.
Turns out Glenn got so excited on his show that he threw out his back! I know Beck doesn’t command the ratings nor the legion of angy octogenarians that he used to, but come on, a guy who is famous for being in hystics hurting himself because of those hysterics? That’s gold! Although we do wish him, and his career, a speedy recovery.
What I’m most impressed by in this story is the fact that being a blow hard requires a level of physical prowess. I suppose barrelling through those ludicrous, embarrassing monologues he gives requires the strength and agility of a football player. It’s only natural then that he should sustain similar injuries. Indeed, I’m pretty confident that were a neurologist to see a video of Glenn Beck ranting about how the Founding Fathers worried about Radical Muslims forcing us to use paper money, they would assume he had sustained a number of football injury level concussions and brain damage.
Maybe that’s why Rush Limbaugh, another blow hard, is constantly taking perscription pain medication…
