Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ Rally

Glenn Beck plans a rally for the anniversary of MLK’s “I Have A Dream” speech.  He calls it “Restoring Honor.”   Now he’s saying it’s totally apolitical – and the proof is Sarah Palin will be the headlining speaker.  Oh, and it’s partially sponsored by the National Rifle Association.

What other “totally apolitical” speakers do you think Beck will bring with him to the Lincoln Memorial steps?

    I watched an interview with an author and radio talk show hoist who is the truest definition of mixed bag often associated with Moderates. But is a Palin supporter and Conservative.
    Claimed to be openly gay, pro-choice and pro-second amendment and pro Gay marriage.

    It could have gotten confusing with those stances why she also seem to buy into the rhetoric about Obama.
    That the facts and evidence does not support, the claim of the Tea partiers are just not aware of the facts .
    She said is not true and it is because of them being aware of the facts that cause the formation and activism of the Tea Party.

    Most people wouldn’t know facts if they were slapped in the face with them. They know only as much as they want to, and that’s as little as possible. The less they know, the more they can argue without those facts getting in the way.

    When Beck announces the name of five liberals, then I’ll believe his b.s.

    Which reminds me, has anybody heard how George and Laura are doing these days? Their two girls seem to have grown up and learned a little about real life, not just the priveleged life.

    • They both have books coming out soon, I think Laura’s will be released first. From what I’ve read, George’s comes out around election time this fall, maybe a bit before or after, but the publicity will definitely put him ‘in the news’ at a time some Republicans don’t want anyone to be reminded about him.

        Last thing I read about George’s book is that he requested his release date be postponed until after the election because he did not want his book to become a distraction.

        Is it true that the Shrub’s book comes complete with crayons?

    In order for someone to restore honor – don’t they have to possess some honor?

    Maybe Beck should rename this little project?

    This has got to be the dead-on best summation of the character of Sarah Palin that I have ever read:

    A Grand Unified Theory of Palinisms
    Why Sarah Palin says all those stupid and ridiculous things.
    By Jacob Weisberg

    Tina Fey’s caricature of Palin as an unprepared high-school student trying to bluff her way through an oral exam by mugging and flirting hit its mark not merely because of the genius of the mimicry, but because of its fundamentally accurate diagnosis of Palin as bullshit artist. Palin’s exuberant incoherence testifies to an unusually wide gulf between confidence and ability. She is proud of what she doesn’t know and contemptuous of those “experts” and “elitists” who are too knowledgeable to be trusted. This curious self-regard echoes through her book, Going Rogue, described by the critic Jonathan Raban as “a four-hundred-page paean to virtuous ignorance.”

    Bushisms, which I collected for many years, often hinged on a single grammatical or factual error. Palinisms, by contrast, consist of a unitary stream of patriotic, populist blather. It’s like Fox News without the punctuation. It is so devoid of content that it hardly deserves the adjective “truthy.” Let’s call it “roguey.” Palinisms do not have to contain actual evidence of rogue thinking, though; they just have to capture the rogue spirit. It’s “Yes, we can, in spite of Them.”

    This was on

    • Although I used to give Republicans credit for being smart enough to not nominate Palin, ever since the Tea Partiers put Sharron Angle on the ticket against Harry Reid, I take away that credit — they aren’t smart enough! They are so tied up in their emotions of hate and desire for vengeance, they aren’t thinking at all.
