Once Glenn Beck left Fox, he sort of also left the landscape of media personalities I pay attention to. Not that I assumed his radio show was somehow the model of sensible political conversation that his TV never was, but it's hard to keep up with all the crazy people on the radio everyday.
However, when the guy compares Rick Santorum to Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, that sort of pure insanity is impossible to ignore. There's part of me that thinks that Beck will come out some day and say that his entire public persona was an elaborate prank and this will be the moment I look back at and realize I should have guessed.
