I used to like Beck - back when he was funny, more like he is on O'Reilly. I can't bear his show now though. His pseudo-wisdom cum 700-Club done LDS style, his tears, the whole package just comes across as snake oil salesman.
I have a feeling if anyone had heard him back when he was funny (maybe 15 years ago now)and compared it to today, they might be a little skeptical of his sincerity.
He could be quite convincing. He had a good number of listeners believing that he truly thought the news about John-John Kennedy dying in a plane crash was just more hype about John Denver. He played his audience for the fool then and I think he's using the same techniques now.
Yes, if you have red-green confusion. ;-)
