Another Hole to Plug

© Brian Fairrington

During Obama’s press conference on the Gulf oil catastrophe, he remarked that his daughter Malia had asked him “Did you plug the hole yet, Daddy?”

But apparently that remark unleashed another gusher. Glenn Beck went on the attack, making fun of her for the remark, questioning her education, and even bringing race into the mocking, pretending to be Malia asking Obama “Why do you hate black people so much?” and “Daddy you’re a puppet”.

Of course, just two days earlier when talking about Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, Beck said that the media should leave the families of politicians alone. But that didn’t stop him from a hypocritical full force attack on Obama’s daughter

I don’t know if he realized his mistake, or if Fox News is keeping him on a shorter leash now that his ratings are dropping, but Beck later apologized for attacking Malia.

    I haven’t yet figured out if Beck actually believes what he says, with his daily conspiracy theories that get more irrational by the moment, or if he has a team of geniuses who sit around and think up new ways to brainwash his inbred viewers/listeners so that he can make another dozen million.
