Glenn Beck’s TV show on Fox News is going off the air at the end of the month.
But not to worry, ye faithful followers. Ye Beckerwoods. He’ll still be on the radio.
Seems that Fox News’ Minister of Propaganda and Fearmongering Fuhrer was losing sponsors at a steady pace throughout the past year or so.
Beck came to power on Fox soon after Barack Obama was sworn in as president.
Another thing we can blame on Obama.
But for now we say hasta la bye, bye to Beck the televised demogogue in a song. Sung to the tune of “Thanks for the Memories”:
“Thanks for the propaganda
for peoples’ careers you destroyed
for the many you made paranoid
the bold face lies you told
on TV and books you sold
all of this with facts you dismissed
while trying to sell gold.
Good riddance, you putz.”
Beck still needs to be seen to be, well, believed.
Here are some suggestions for him to remain in the public eye:
1. He could host a reality TV show called “Are You Smarter Than A Nazi Sympathizer?”
2. He could run for president on the Lunatic Fringe Party ticket with Rick Santorum as his running mate. The timing couldn’t be better. The more insane your theories, the more you get covered in the media, which in turn gives you free air time for people with simple minds to vote for you.
3. Drive the bus on Palin’s next leg of her One America tour, this time in the Heartland.
4. Be the Baba Booey to Rush Limbaugh on the TV segment of America’s Bully’s radio show.
5. Co-star in the TV sit-com “Hangin’ with Mr. Jesus,” a comedy series in the tradition of “My Favorite Martian.” When Jesus comes back to Earth soon, he’ll want to be on a TV sitcom because that’s the only way he can convince people that he really is the son of God. So on this show, Glenn plays the reluctant guy who becomes Jesus’ buddy who puts him up at his pad until Jesus can get right and earn money on his own.
Glenn has to pretend that the son of God is his “Uncle Jesse” because everyone will think he’s crazy if he says the son of god is staying with him. Glenn plays a morning show TV host whose “Uncle Jesse” soon begins to speak through him.
Join the fun as Glenn and Uncle Jesse convince people that Democrats are demons, President Obama is a Kenyan Muslim socialist who hates white people and Christians, and how Beck has to defend his uncle from people who think he’s a pot-smokin’ damn hippie with too many liberal wussy views.
Comedy ensues as the long-suffering Beck has to be the straight man when Uncle Jesse deals with the modern age —- from everything from dating to getting a Twitter account.
Future plots inclue Uncle Jesse dealing with road rage on the freeway, teaming with Bristol Palin at an abstinance convention, and the special one-hour episode when he decides it’s time he goes on Facebook.
