We at Alternative Tulsa enjoy a good laugh. So we are rarely disappointed with the political hysterics of Glenn Beck, the Fox News wingbag who has a loose connection to such notions as truth and honesty.
The latest Beck hysteria is his repeated rumor-mongering over a supposed Obama Administration tactic against Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson. According to Beck, the nasty folks at the White House are threatening to close an important air force base in Nebraska if Nelson doesn't cooperate on health care reform.
Great story—if it happened to be true. It's not, but that never stops a True Believer.
Since he doesn't have any actual evidence, Beck plays a little game of "what if." "If the rumor is true," he intones, "then it shows how evil Obama really is." It may be treason, Beck claims.
