Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?
Daily Kos: Beck vs. Markos: Well, well, well. Guess which Mullah of the American Taliban has decided to take on Markos [Moulitsas Zuniga]? It's none other than Glenn Beck, who fired back at comments that Markos made Monday evening on Countdown. Beck was angry at Markos for characterizing his rhetoric as "eliminationist." Beck denied the accusation, apparently forgetting the fact that earlier this year he said this:
Progressivism is the cancer in America and it is eating our Constitution. And it was designed to eat the Constitution. To progress past the Constitution... [...] It is big government – it’s a socialist utopia. And we need to address it as if it is a cancer. It must be cut out of the system because they cannot co-exist. And you don’t cure cancer by – well, I’m just going to give you a little bit of cancer. You must eradicate it. It cannot co-exist...
If that's not eliminationist rhetoric, I don't know what is.
