My apologies to Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead — and perhaps more importantly, my apologies to their followers a.k.a. 'dead heads.' But after watching Glenn Beck's dramatic run up to his road-show gospel the other day, one has to believe that these white, numb followers don't have much going on upstairs and have truly earned this moniker.
500,000 people? Really? Best estimates had the crowd size at 100,000, but hey when it comes to grey matter and compassion, size doesn't matter. The rally was a joke and sounded more like an evangelical rally, but why would anyone be surprised. The only folks that succumb to that sort of drivel are far-right religious zealots anyway.
Alert to the Dead heads — Beck is a Mormon. And you thought you had the market on crazy cornered.
