Glenn Beck: the Man, the Punchline

 


Visitors: 203

Having recently relocated to Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, Glenn has made his foray into the world of television as of this writing.
Persona: Glenn prides himself on being a funny man, a funny fat man, who cares much less about politics than just about everyone else on the radio. He mocks his callers, pokes fun at current events, and picks on his sidekick Stu without crossing that tiny little line to mean-spirited that others like Limbaugh, Ingraham, and Savage think is really a line to higher ratings. Okay, for them it probably is, since there are plenty of mean-spirited, insignificant people in the world that want to hear someone else get abused for a change.

Ego: Doesn't really have one. He's a recovering alcoholic who talks about it but isn't preachy; a middle-aged fat guy who claims to have a shrill wife; a mediocre host by his own admission. He gets a bit indignant when he's faced with issues that the “liberals" have apparently gotten at advantage on; this is where his not-so-secret interest in politics come in.

Politics. It's nice to find a bona-fide conservative on the air who talks about something other than politics. We've all heard the endless tirades . . . Beck talks about runaway brides, men who forget anniversaries, gay marriage and the ten commandments, endless discussions about American Idol, a fair amount about sports (which includes his priceless Moron Trivia, in which convenience-store clerk in football cities are scored on such questions as, “If you're walking due north and make a left turn, which direction are you heading?") . . . current events. Whether or not you agree with his opinions, you have to admit that he's talking about things that are beneath the snootiness of some of the more pompous windbags on the air.

Quirks. Makes fun of the competition. He has “closed-line Fridays" where he'll hang up on anyone boring or smarter than him. He figures if you tune in for three hours a week, that's fine.
