The Real Problem with Glenn Beck
by

Bill O’Reilly is more of a populist than a serious conservative, but I don’t read many conservative denunciations of him. Glenn Beck might get the boot because he occasionally says things like this: John McCain would have been worse than Barack Obama.

Hard to say, obviously, since McCain didn’t become president. On the plus side, a President McCain would have probably spent a little less on the stimulus (though there would still have been one) and pushed for some of the earmarks to be taken out, would have retained the Mexico City policy, and would have appointed a Supreme Court justice to the right of Sonia Sotomayor. On the negative side, we might be at war in three countries simultaneously, cap and trade would have been more likely to pass, and there’d be more action on the amnesty front than the occasional speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.

Personally, I’d like to know the outcome of the health care debate and what we end up doing in the Middle East before making such a pronouncement. But Beck’s interview where he says the unsayable is here.
