Tragedy in the Heartland

This post was deleted for the following reason: SLOP. Single link Onion Post would be weak enough without also rehashing the overly hashed Glenn Beck memes. -- vacapinta

That's some odd satire, and definitely not one of The Onion's finest moments. His opposers certainly dislike the guy and would rather people had more common sense than to listen to him, but a weird jokey death wish just feeds his batshit martyr complex.

(Of course, I realize they're satirizing people who hate the guy, but that just fuels the type of left-wing caricature he rants on about)

Huh. The FPP makes it sound like Glenn Beck was in a horrible accident, but not killed.

As a fellow Beck, I've been especially pained by Glenn's ascendency. This was one of the funniest things I'd seen in a long time.

For a split-second there I was......but no.

You want to know how to make Glenn Beck go away? Ignorance. No, not that kind, the kind of ignorance that fails to recognize that his particular mass of hydrocarbons were ever assembled in the first place. Be strong.

Yes, a satire of left-wing caricatures. Just between you and me The Colbert Report is a documentary series - don't tell the libtards!

It wasn't the Onion's finest. The Halloween costume for effete video wasn't bad though.
