I’m poppin popcorn. The responses should be good.
Why bother with an intelligent response to such an idiotic, inaccurate, and poorly written piece? Did Erickson write this? I sure hope not. Glenn does not agree with Ron Paul. Believe it. He has said so to me personally in not so many words. Beck plays a critical role in destroying the left's key narratives, and putting them on the defensive. The left is OBSESSED with Beck and spend an inordinate amount of time attacking him, while we conservatives are mostly amused. It reminds me of "Patton" wherein the German High Command is fixated on Patton and convinced that Eisenhower will use him for every major offensive. Not comparing the two men of course. Just showing how even if you don't care for Beck, you should understand that he serves a big role in the war against the progressive left.
The world of the dyed-in-the-wool Free Republic conservative continues to shrink.
Most libertarians are fiscal conservatives and social liberals, so Beck could fall down that hole.
