Glenn Beck Declares War On The Bushes
Advertisements [?]
Glenn Beck launched an unprecedented verbal assault on former Barbara Bush in response to the former First Lady's comments regarding Sarah Palin. In the audio segment to the left from Beck's radio show, Beck goes after Barbara Bush based on her looks in response to what he called "insulting" comments. The "really insulting" comments in question came from an interview Bush gave to Larry King. When asked about Sarah Palin, Barbara Bush said she was "beautiful" and that she hopes Palin "stays in Alaska." Some saw that comment as signal that Bush does not believe Palin should run for president.


Beck then goes on to call Barbara Bush the "oatmeal box lady." Evidently it is not acceptable for Bush to comment on Palin's looks in a positive way but completely acceptable for Beck to negatively comment on the looks of the former First Lady.

This should get interesting.
