Glenn Beck on Jay Leno

The National Examiner recaps some of Glenn Beck's best quotes of 2009. Also provided is a recent Jay Leno interview in which Beck claims to be just a regular guy speaking his mind and not the polarizing figure he's often described as. I completely agree with Il Principe that posting about this guy is feeding the "weapons of mass distraction" machine, but I can't help myself.

Today Glenn Beck went on Jay Leno's show and while there were many interesting moments from the interview the most striking was Beck's claim that he "is not a polarizing guy." Instead Beck says he is just a guy from a small town saying "the things that have to be said."

Merriam Webster defines "polarize" as "to break up into opposing factions or groupings." While Beck may contend his rehotoric is benign many would beg to differ. A simple google search turns up the following Beck quotes which many would see as very "polarizing."

What's your opinion? Is Glenn Beck's definition of Libertarian a good one? Is that talk about hating both major parties and being a Libertarian himself sincere. What do you think? Please leave a comment.
