Stephen Colbert:

Nation, I’m sorry but I got to take a minute here to defend the mainstream media’s favorite punching bag, Glenn Beck.  They are attacking the silver gopher just because he dominates the coveted demographic of 18 to 49 yr old voices in his head.  Now, It’s perfectly fair to attack Glenn for what he believes afterall he is a public figure like President Obama or Kermit the Frog. 

He is a fear-mongerer of a thousand voices.  Well, two.  But now they’re coming after Glenn for something much more important than his beliefs.  What Glenn believes is irrelevant.  He has said himself that he is not a journalist…

“I’m not a journalist” (New York Times, June 16, 2009)

…he is just a rodeo clown…

“I’m a rodeo clown.” (New York Times, March 9, 2009)

…and that if you believe what he says you’re an idiot…

“…you’re an idiot.” (New York Times, March 29, 2009)

…which itself proves that Glenn Beck believes what he says.

But Glenn does more than just say things.  Tell them what you do Glenn.

“I just love my country *whimper* and I fear for it.”

He just loves and fears.  And sometimes he just fears love.
