Glenn Beck: A Mixed Metaphor

Over the weekend, apocalyptic evangelical Glenn Beck performed for a crowd of 8,000, who paid more than $120/per for a seven hour show.

And while the Philadelphia Daily News devoted a couple of paragraphs to Beck's calls for non-violence as they described him taking a sledgehammer to the "anvil of truth", they also note that his next book will be a political thriller which includes a civil war most likely won by a group called the "Founders Keepers".

The Orlando Sentinel may not have spent as much time mingling with the audience, but they do have a couple of different quotes from the stage and in both a paragraph plus the headline, they grabbed upon Beck's calls for his "army" to restore the nation.

Apparently in two weeks, Glenn will tell us how to cut the federal budget by 50% and he plans a rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to coincide with the anniversary of King's "I Have a Dream" speech. If nothing else, he really wants to drive the debate.
