My prediction about Glenn Beck
One day the guy is going to have a "dream" or a "vision", and then declare that God is talking to him. There will be no end to his Crazy!

2. I bet he already experiences this but keeps it hidden.

3. Figuring out Glenn Beck is a piece of cake
He doesn't vet his right wing agi-prop

That is his Achilles Heel

4. Since everything he does is an act, it would be easy for him to claim god spoke to him
It's all part of his schtick.

You can just watch this guy and see that the whole thing is a big giant scam and he really doesn't believe the bullshit he is spouting. He's found a formula that appeals to the dumbasses and he's exploiting it to the max. THe hicks are eating it up and he's making a ton of money.

He is the modern day embodiment of Barnum's statement that nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.

5. I can see that happening.
After all, he's just another televangelist.

6. He sees himself as a prophet.
I think he would go as far as to being the first person to commit suicide on TV so he will become a martyr and immortal.
