It's scary stuff, Maggie. I was listening to Glen Beck's idea of Planned Parenthood but it sickened me too much and I had to stop.

I just noticed you're in Wisconsin. Did you go see Sarah stand up for Governor Walker over the weekend?

No Madison for me....spent a great deal of time worrying that one of my son's might attend. One of them thinks Glen Beck is the answer to all of today's problems.
My oldest son, unemployed, financially on the edge and easy prey for someone like Beck. Fear works !!!
Not sure he is as taken with Ms Palin but he loves Scott Walker.

Yikes. There seems to be a lot of easy prey for Beck out there. Beck is a master of misinformation but I don't think he's delusional - I think he's well aware that he's making things up. That makes it all the more sinister to me.

Just had a discussion with someone who felt that Glen Beck, Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh were "stupid" people. I don't think so.....I think all three of them are pretty smart....wouldn't mind having their bank accounts. Problem is, we hear what they say and they DO say stupid things but we shouldn't underestimate these people. They know what they are doing and they are good at it.
Should never consider an advisary "stupid"......if one wants to score points they better know how smart their opponent is.
