Rage Against the Machine

It might have taken a whole year for pundit Glenn Beck to start hating the families of 9/11 victims, but it took the rest of us about two minutes to start hating Glenn Beck. Who cares if he flip-flops on the issue of health care, hits on attractive female visitors to his show, calls President Obama a racist in one breath, and then disparages Mexican immigrants in the next? All you need to know about why you should hate Glenn Beck is that he’ll read at Barnes & Noble in Fort Lauderdale. Props to small business owner Mitchell Kaplan at Books & Books for not hosting Beck’s bizarro children’s show or selling any mishmash of the English language he’s calling a “book.” Furthermore, we mention Beck’s 7:30 p.m. appearance this Friday only as a cautionary measure, so that no sane individual unwittingly wanders into B&N and gets hit over the head by a shovel.
Fri., Nov. 20, 7:30 p.m., 2009
