Glen Beck: "Rick Santorum..the Churchill of Our Times"
I couldn't believe my ears! I just heard some self-proclaimed/self-important idiot, alcoholic talk radio show host (I know, I know...redundant as Hell!) by the name of Glen Beck say that the conservative he admires most these days is former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA). In fact, this Beck character(ture)says he became a true conservative when he sobered up sometime in the mid-90's. This must be why he credits his conservative roots to the Reagan era, a time period in which Mr. Beck's brain was obviously pickled in alcohol.

This post-fetal alcoholism must also be why Beck thinks Rick Santorum is some modern day equivalent of Winston Churchill. Beck says of Santorum: “ ...he is a Winston Churchill of some kind for our times. I think this guy (Santorum) really has it. I think he really understands the world we live in right now."
I had never heard of this Beck guy before and I can see why! Whoa!! Glen. Rick Santorum? Some kind of a Winston Churchill for our times? But Beck doesn't reserve his expert analysis to just historic world political figures by the likes of Churchill and the great Rick Santorum, Beck calls John McCain "...more dangerous to the conservative movement than Hillary Clinton."
Well, there you have it ladies and gentlemen, Glen Beck, the man (alcoholic), the mind (fermented) and his wisdom (Santorum is some kind of Churchill), truly a conservative for our time.
William F. Buckley, you will be sorely missed.
