Third person omniscient bullshit

Glenn Beck is so full of bullshit that it's hard to know where to start cleaning it up.

Here, he starts and finishes with this utter nonsense:

"This is for America. This is for NATO. This is for Bush." These were the phrases that the president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvilli, told me were on Russian bombs...
I suppose Saakashvilli has super hearing to match the super vision that gives him the ability to read chalk off of falling bombs. Beck must think so. He takes everything Saakashvilli says as if he's George Washington and James Madison and who else could he roll into his ball of over-the-top hyperbole?

Later, Beck gives the UN the back of his hand for merely condemning the Russian invasion - as if the U.S. has done anything stronger. Oh, I forgot, we cancelled a joint military exercise with Russia. That'll teach 'em!

Beck would be an embarrassment to McCNN if they were capable of it. When will they have a liberal host who gets months and months of promotion? Never, that would make too much sense.

But someone ought to be reminding viewers and readers that Russia is engaged in the same sort of violation of international law in Georgia as we are Iraq.

Yes, in my mind, the Russia/Georgia and US/Iraq situations are greatly similar. I've wondered when I'd see something about that in print.
