This is going to be a short diary, so I apologize. I've written mostly long ones, but this idea is too much fun not to share. I hope to at least get a few fun comments out of it. But before you travel all the way below the fold, understand that we are going on several presumptions:

  1. Glenn Beck is paranoid.
  1. Glenn Beck is dangerous.
  1. Glenn Beck is batshit crazy.
  1. Glenn Beck, pushed over the edge, could be pretty funny.


I admit to being inspired by Keith Olbermann's call to us, his evil minions, to come up with some dirt on Glenn Beck in retaliation for Beck's disgustingly craven call for dirt on more of Obama's nominees. When KO led off tonight's "Countdown," which is on right now, the leap from finding something about Beck to bringing something to Beck popped into my mind. Think of it as doing the good and just thing, giving to someone who has so little...sanity, that is. It's Christmas in September. Be good, be generous...and be just.

It's like volunteering in your community, doing your little bit in your corner of the world to make it a better place. Ask yourself: what can I do, what gesture, what small bit of encouragement can I give, to send Glenn Beck screaming over the edge? What do I have to offer that can tip the balance of Beck's already-teetering sanity? Is there some action I can take to make this world a better place by driving Beck into a serious psychotic break? How can I help Glenn Beck to be all that he can be?

This is in fun, just a bit of fiendish gallows humor to pass the time while the dangerous loon himself pontificates on Fixed Noise, so don't take it seriously. But please give your ideas, give generously, and I'll try to put it together later as a poll...maybe as an update to this diary, or as a separate diary tomorrow. So rouse yourselves, take up the challenge, and enter your ideas in the First And Possibly Only Diurnal Glenn Insanity Beckstakes!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
