The Weekly Standard Attacks Glenn Beck's Historical "Nonsense"

There's a civil war raging in conservative ranks. No, not the Tea Party v. the establishment GOP, but Fox commentator Glenn Beck v. The Weekly Standard.

The wiseacres over at The Weekly Standard can actually read and analyze ideas (who knew?), which means they have a big (and easy) target on the right: the "nonsense" (their word) for Glenn Beck's weird view of history.

The score thus far: The Weekly Standard, 1: Glenn Beck, 0. But then again, Beck's been a zero for some time now.

Well, God knows the Weekly Standard--well, sets the standard. Like here.

I mean, you just can't help but take that publication seriously.

That article really hammered away at the theme of Obama as narcissist. It reads like a takeoff from Rove's trial balloon Obama meme before the last election:

"Even if you never met him, you know this guy," Rove said... "He's the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."

That was a good one.
