So, I'm watching Glenn Beck and I've noticed that he's worse than a 1st grade teacher now.

7. I don't understand the comparison with a first grade teacher
But Beck is nothing more than a "Morning Zoo" deejay who has stumbled onto a lucrative schtick.

My guess is he doesn't believe 90% of the bullshit he spews out, but it keeps the rubes watching.

For what its worth, I don't think Limbaugh (another former deejay) believes much of HIS crap either.

Sean Hannity? That stupid asshole believes every word.

9. I tend to agree with you.
Those two, Beck and Limbaugh, only care about making money, and lots of it, and let themselves be used in any way by the Right to achieve those ends.


Hannity is just a smarmy fuck True Believer. He would say what he says for free, like he used to before becoming a radio 'personality'.

8. I taught 1st grade....4th... 6th....High School Science/Math
And Special Education.

First grade and 9th grade were the toughest babies I had.

Oh, yeah..... maybe Glenn was in one of those classes because he reminds me
of many Special education students I had that had behavioral disabilities that effected their learning.....

AND NOW THEY HAVE THEIR OWN TV SHOWS WITH BLACKBOARDS.

I'm serious, imagine Glenn as your student...... you know you've seen him
if you ever taught in any capacity. You have seen student presentations before the class
where they cried, used made up facts, were not prepared but were showmen and the kids
knew Glenn and his issues.............. BTW look up Glenn Becks educational history.

Imagine him on the playground.

Oh, yeah now he has Faux News.

I miss Cronkite, Murrow and Sevareid and even Dan Rather




The OP used the wrong analogy.

16. My 1st grade teacher could practically walk on water...
Edited on Wed Jun-30-10 05:33 PM by Dappleganger
we hung on her every word.

Beck is an idiotic fool and holds no comparison to teachers of any level.

14. I guess making analogies isn't your strong suit.




Care to try again?

15. I've thought about it and I imagine the OP means Glenn Beck treats his viewers
as though they were as ignorant of the real world as first graders. That as a first grade teacher necessarily talks down to the children, so Mr. Beck talks down to his fans.

That's a guess but it's all I can imagine, and when you think about it that way, the analogy isn't so hard to see.

17. Some 1st graders are smart
This little 2 year old should be either there or almost in high school by now.
