A recent post over at Joe's compelled me to tune in Glen Beck the other day, something I hadn't done in quite a while.
Once upon a time I listened to Beck fairly frequently, because unlike other conservative talk radio personalities, he could be funny. As a matter of fact, the promo for his show is, "More comedy, less politics." Problem is, that's no longer the case. Over the past couple years he's pretty much lost every ounce of entertainment value and is now just like every other talk radio dude.
Anyway, something hit me about 10 minutes into listening: Whine, whine, whine, whine, whine. All he was doing was whining about the Democrats. It got me to thinking about other big-time right-wing talkers like Limbaugh, Coulter, Hannity and O'Reilly.
Whine, whine, whine, whine, whine.
What the hell? I though liberals were supposed to be the whiny ones? Whatever happened to the good old "Fuck You and the Donkey You Rode in On" conservatives like this guy? I may not agree with everything they say, but I still respect anyone who can frighten me. When I hear these talk-radio pansies I want to put the gloves on, get them in the ring and see how fast they throw in the towel, crouch in the corner and suck their thumbs.
Don't get me wrong, there are still whiny liberals out there. But they're supposed to whine -- it's what's expected of them, and we know they're whining because they just care so damn much.
But whiny conservatives?
Sack up or STFU.
