A video just surfaced of our favorite right-wing comedian Beck literally barking like a mad dog. It's not manipulated in any way, Beck actually went on air and did a rather lame dog impersonation, attacking President Obama and the economic stimulus. Credit for posting the video goes to Youtube user pakisakau.

The barking was Beck's reaction to President Obama's statement Wednesday regarding the amount of waste in the disbursement of the economic stimulus money (there was very little or no waste). The specific words of President Obama Beck apparently responds to are...

I'm grateful that the Congress agreed to my request that the bill include no earmarks, that all project received funding based solely on their merits. And despite that, I still was concerned -- Joe and I were just talking in the back -- when this thing passed we said, '$787 billion. Somewhere there's going to be some story of some money that ended up being misspent.' $787 billion being spent out of 18 months. That's a lot -- that's a lot of money. And it is a testimony to Vice President Biden and his team that, as Joe puts it, 'The dog so far at least hasn't barked.'

Dogs are creatures of integrity. That's one of the reasons why Beck failed to find a canine that would bark for him. So he had to do the barking himself...

Here's the transcript of a few key moments (I'm transcribing right now...)

The number itself is complete BS... but (unintelligible) are we?
[cut to Obama speech]
Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf!

The strange tenor of the barking may be due to Beck's likely poodle envy, because on Facebook there is a poodle who has more fans than Glenn Beck (thanks to the commenters downthread who pointed me to this link).

I don't know what is funnier, this or his earlier "Get off my phone!" meltdown (props to Cenk Uygur for putting the video up)...

"Get off my phone!!!!!!" already became a popular phone call tone and has been remixed into a bunch of funnies, such as this one:

I don't know if any remixes can be made of the most recent "Arf" accident though - any digital manipulation would actually diminish the crazy...

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.
