Beckapoolza: Beck's Washington Rally Draws Tea Party Critics

How big is Glenn Beck's ego? 

That's the question some of his one-time followers are asking in advance of Beck's upcoming rally in Washington, D.C.

The rally is supposed to promote conservative and Tea Party ideas (such as they are), but some conservatives are complaining that it's all about Beck. 

One of them called it "Beckapalooza." 

Geez, who could have seen this coming? The details here.

A recent entry from the Mahablog: Truth and Totems

"I’ve written before that righties tend to interpret events through myths and symbols rather than facts. Just so, I think they also tend to regard documents such as the Bible and the Constitution more as totems than texts. The documents are cherished as icons of whatever it is they think America or Christianity is, not for what they actually say.

"...the folks who want to erect monuments to the Ten Commandments at schools and courthouses but who cannot name all ten of the commandments if put on the spot to do so."

Beck uses this to his full self-aggrandizing advantage. Beck U. What a bad joke.
