Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick
There's growing concern on the right about the malignant effect that Fux hate-spewer and loony conspiracy-weaver Glenn "Boo Hoo" Beck is having on their cause. Wingers Jennifer Rubin and Peter Wehner have written recently about Boo Hoo's rants and wild conspiracy theories, with Wehner writing in the conservative rag Commentary that "it’s only a matter of time — and I suspect not much time — until he blows apart professionally." Rubin writes that Boo Hoo doesn't speak for the conservative movement. Yesterday, former Rethug Congressman Joe "JoeScar" Scarborough called Boo Hoo out for his delusional behavior, saying at one point that he's "out of control."
Boo Hoo has been a useful tool of the right to sell crackpot ideas to the low information viewers of Fux. But his increasingly unhinged diatribes are becoming a concern to his former cheerleaders, who realize that it's only a matter of time before they witness a career-ending, total mental breakdown live on the conservative "news" network.
