Something Wonderful: Glenn Beck Wears Chris Matthews' Guts for Garters

Glenn Beck is good on TV but his real genius blooms on the radio. Here he takes on Chris Matthews' racist statement,"I forgot Obama was black for an hour," and riffs it into shreds.

"Boy this surgeon that was doing the surgery on me was so unbelievable I forgot he was black for an hour."

"I was talking to my pharmacist behind the counter, and he was such a nice guy I forgot he was black for an hour."

HT: The Morgan.

I understand. The NFC Championship game was so good, for an hour there, I forgot I was Canadian and liked the CFL.

Agreed - Beck ripped up Matthews. The comment was too stupid to contemplate - what, a black man cannot deliver a SotU speech? What did Matthews expect from the POTUS?

"John Yoo explained his legal reasoning so well that I forgot he was Asian for an hour." WTF?

(What was interesting was watching what was going on through the studio window.)

I was driving my race car so good that for an hour I forgot I was black.

I married a white woman and then cheated on her with so many white women that I forgot I was black.

In which Matthews compares the Republicans to Khmer Rouge...help me, but I can't resist saying it: Kinda like forgetting to call the Pol Pot 'black'...for at least an hour.

Matthews is the result of the democrat's long standing affirmative action program for red-nosed drunks of low moral character.

I was feeling so good about America that I forgot Chris Matthews existed for an hour.

For the very first time today, I happened to be in my car when Glenn Beck was on the radio. He is good. And I just happened to catch the Matthews bit. So the one time I don't need to get broadcasts 2nd hand, there Beck is, having such a good radio day that everyone is linking to YouTube. Did you happen to catch O'Reilly with what's his face from Time, subject Beck. Or Ailes taking out Arianna, subject Beck? I first stumbled on Beck while on a trip to Pgh. during a week when the Steelers won a championship and my cousin didn't have cable. I would go out in my car and try to listen to any non-Steeler news to find out what was going on in the world. Hunting the dial for anybody not talking about the Steelers I came across this goofy, but obviously smart guy, Glenn Beck. I don't think he had gone national yet at that time and there was nothing about politics. It was more like a big on air frat party.

BTW, for your California friends, we've launched a new blog today as a companion to Pal2Pal. It is called CALPAL, a blog for and about California and Californians. First set goal, defeat "Call me Senator" Boxer. Twitter CALPALHQ. It won't be all politics even though this is such a huge election year. We will cover anything California related and accept newshound submissions on any California-related topic from sports to space.

I figure if I'm stuck in this state because it takes every dime I have coming in just to exist here and I can't afford to get out, I might as well try to contribute to making it politically livable.

The thing that's worse than the leftist pretense of transcending race is the white-liberal affectation of being "down there" with the "brothers".

The loathsome Woodrow Wilson is dead, but his Dixiecrat attitudes are still alive and well in the party that continues to worship him.
