One would think that Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin would be the best of friends when you consider that both of them love to traffic in conspiracy theories and often say things that make us all roll our eyes or exclaim, “WTF was that all about?!”
But what started last September when Beck criticized Palin for speaking to Donald Trump at an anti-Iran nuclear deal rally has now escalated. What Beck said then is:
“I don’t care what Sarah Palin says any more. Sarah Palin has become a clown. I’m embarrassed that I was once for Sarah Palin. Honestly, I’m embarrassed… I don’t know who she is any more, I don’t know what she stands for. I saw a clip of her talking to Donald Trump. What the hell is that? I don’t even know who she is any more.”
Though it frightens me more than a little to admit this, I agree completely with Beck. Sarah Palin is indeed a clown, and she is also incredibly stupid and often speaks in gibberish.
Then we come to Palin endorsing Trump and Beck fired off this salvo:
“Sarah Palin. Small Government, lower taxes, fewer regulations and the constitution? Not any more. Big government…Sad excuse to abandon principles. Just because things don’t go my way, I don’t abandon God. Saul Alinsky is wrong. The ends do not justify the means.”
Strong words, but again, who is more deserving of ridicule than Sarah Palin with the possible exception of her new BFF Donald Trump or the reincarnation of Joseph McCarthy, Ted Cruz? Cruz, by the way, is who the Beckster is supporting for the GOP nomination.
Thursday, Palin let loose with a fiery rant on Facebook, writing:
“Ted Cruz’s star spokesman and campaign partner, Glenn Beck, promises he will support a socialist vs. the pro-life, pro-2nd amendment, pro-growth, pro-American GOP front runner… what’s conservative about that?
“Beck joins Cruz in inviting more illegals to break America’s laws as the two link arms to greet illegal immigrants at the border with rewarding gifts of soccer balls and teddy bears… what’s celebratory about that?”
Can you see the buildup that’s coming as she nears the end of her bizarre flood of words? Here it is:
“Beck will go ballistic after reading this post and will ramp up his unjustified attacks against Donald Trump, me, my faith, and you – for acknowledging all this I’ve outlined, in his own words… what’s smart about that?”
Sarah Palin saying someone is not smart is akin to a wolf complaining that a coyote likes to kill chickens. Don’t get me wrong: Beck and Palin are both nutjobs, and seeing the Republican party fracture this way is a thing of beauty.
We will await Beck’s reply to the half-term governor and anticipate it will be very juicy.
