Glenn Beck, art critic, is back. The conservative commentator posted an online video Tuesday in which he addressed at length the subject of "obscene" art and the 1st Amendment. In an homage to Andres Serrano's "Piss Christ," Beck concluded by dunking a likeness of President Obama in a mason jar filled with a clear yellow liquid.

Beck offered to sell the work, titled "Obama in Pee Pee," for $25,000. "It's all protected by this document," he said, pointing to a copy of the Constitution.

"So whether you're offended by this one or by this one," Beck said, pointing to various examples of controversial art, "it sucks to be you, doesn't it?"

Hilarious. Mockery is our most potent (& maybe only) weapon.

Glenn Beck ala Maplethorpe. Good comeback for the _resident who prides himself as the messiah of the left.

I tried in vain to get thru to the show yesterday to suggest just that!

He should have known to call it such.

I guess we’re all in the gutter now...

I’m all for vigorous arguments and debate, even when accompanied with the rich color of vulgarity in the adult setting. But this kind of exhibit is repugnant and not symbolic of the aggressive response the Left deserves.

Not sure how this helps to elevate the moral bar for those meandering across the political divide.

Maybe. But why doesn't the right embrace their wack-jobs as a way of flushing out liberals and making a point like the left does? This is a serious question and I don't necessarily disagree with what you said, so please don't lecture about right and wrong, we're bettet than that, blah, blah, blah...

The problem with a logical, sensible argument that is based on facts and figures that is presented to liberals is that it takes the 10 lane express lane right over the top of their head.

You have to dumb it down to their level.

Low-class, crass and juvenile on Beck's part. It doesn't help the conservative cause one bit....and certainly it doesn't add to respect for him personally.

Standards are lowered now....gutter-talk is knee-slapping and urine comedy is applauded.

Different sick jokes for different strokes, I guess....it's a free country.

,,,, it takes a wack-job to know one ,,,, Beck is simply exercising his 1st amend. right just like the creep who submerged the crucifix of Christ in a vat of urine and displayed it in a museum in N.Y.C. . The only difference is ,, Beck did not receive a federal grant to piss off the left . I'm very proud of Beck for doing this to the messiah of American ruination ,, This commie b@$+@rd deserves all the descent he receives . God bless you Glen Beck !!!!

Now, we will have contests from the left to see the depth of grossness each side can go. He can do whatever he likes. Like I said earlier, in the week, I don't want to go down the road to the leftists whack jobs; the same ones who smeared Palin’s little boy. This is where we don't need to be to win. We need tough leaders, the 2 ideologies crashing and one winner. The good guys. I understand what he thinks he is doing. It's too odd-I think he put a mini flag in there. Dumb. Whatever..Me, a thumbs down.

I don't have a problem with Beck turning the tables on liberal hypocrites but what did the pee-pee do to deserve such punishment?

I have often been at a loss to understand this idea where when one is assaulted morally or otherwise that the idea of net engaging the offender gives one the moral high ground.

Having attempted to take the high ground in such circumstances, how is it that while I may have taken the high ground....I lost the debate. There was little satisfaction for myself in having taken the high ground in the face of losing the debate. Whereas I have descended to their level and triumphed in the debate, I lost the high ground and was declared the loser.

The moral of the story is with the circumstance you have outlined....there is no way to win against those who offend. I am just expected to take it and offer no resistance to be thought a better person and yet am still viewed as a loser.

In order to defeat these leftist whackjobs one has to gore their sacred cows, filet them and stuff them down their throats as they have gored my sacred cows and stuffed them down my throat.

Sometimes fighting is the answer and war does solve the problem.

Though, eventually as you presented this scenario, the two sides will have to come to a conclusion in the distance future. The whackjobs will never admit to any wrong doings, while the other side, would have crossed the line as well. 2 wrongs do not make a right. You can agree with him. He has a right to do this.

Glen is simply pointing out how the left only believes in free speech for their side. They are more outraged about this than the “religious right” gets over blasphemy. Tells you all you need to know about liberalism.
