    (yawn)

    Try, just TRY, and imagine how little I care!

    This might be why:

    http://www.businessinsider.com/for-the-first-time-ever-glenn-beck-drops-to-fifth-place-at-fox-news-2011-2?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed28Business+Insider%29

    And that was 2 months ago. If he hasn’t improved since then, could be a very good reason for Fox to drop him. Sorry, still haven’t figured out the hyperlinks.

  3. Mark says:

    Beck is now a broken record. Everything is a deep conspiracy — we get it. Everyone is out to destroy the world– we get it.

    Plus, maybe Beck’s extremism is just hard for everyone — even at Fox — to take.

    My guess is, private polling by FOX showed a more significant drop in his show and his revenue, than it was worth. He was making FOX look bad.

    Mark… He was making FOX look bad.

    There are so many possible next sentences, I don’t know which to pick. It’s an embarrassment of riches. 😉

    uh . . . hmm . . . uh . . . (taking a breath)

    (the mind goes blank)

    This tweet made me chuckle

    Ailes blasts Beck: “1/2 the headlines say he’s been cancelled. Other 1/2 say he quit. We’re pretty happy with both” http://thkpr.gs/g5YG6J

  7. I guess I better sell all off my Acme Chalk stock before the price on each share drops!

    Stephen Webster collects the “Ten Craziest Things Glenn Beck Ever Said”:

    10. “God is giving a plan I think to me that is not really a plan. The problem is that I think the plan that the Lord would have us follow is hard for people to understand. Because of my track record with you who have been here for a long time. Because of my track record with you, I beg of you to help me get this message out, and I beg of you to pray for clarity on my part.”

    9. “I don’t think we came from monkeys. I think that’s ridiculous. I haven’t seen a half-monkey, half-person yet.”

    8. “I know the progressives are using progressive tactics. They’re not using Nazi tactics. The real answer is the Nazis were using early American progressive tactics. And that’s not my opinion, that’s historic fact.”

    7. “You know, we all have our inner demons. I, for one – I can’t speak for you, but I’m on the verge of moral collapse at any time. It can happen by the end of the show.”

    6. “This president I think has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture. I’m not saying he doesn’t like white people, I’m saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist.”

    5. ”There are a lot of universities that are as dangerous with the indoctrination of the children as terrorists are in Iran or North Korea. We have been setting up reeducation camps. We call them universities.”

    4. “I’m thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I’m wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out. Is this wrong? I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus — band — Do, and I’ve lost all sense of right and wrong now.”

    3. “The only [Katrina victims] we’re seeing on television are the scumbags.”
    — Sept. 9, 2005

    2. “You know, it took me about a year to start hating the 9/11 victims’ families. It took me about a year. Just like, oh, shut up. I’m so sick of them because they’re always complaining. […] I didn’t think I could hate victims faster than the 9/11 victims.”

    1. “They [Democrats in Congress] believe in communism. They believe and have called for a revolution. You’re going to have to shoot them in the head. But warning, they may shoot you.”

    He has several pairs of chinchillas in heat and plans to retire to a Chinchilla Ranch in Lower Lumbago Wyoming. His Fawks job is just too demanding.

    All of the teanderthal spokes-monkeys peaked early and their numbers have tanked as the sense of buyers remorse sets in like a grim 211 hangover from hell.

    This is why I despise Independents. They are really the Narcissism Party fence sitting and voting by reflex. They are pillows bearing the impression of whoever last sat on them and Beckian rump weight was too much even for them to bear.

    They showed us… huh?
