Palin, Beck and TIME

GLENN: So, The Time 100 just came out and I’m on the Time 100. They don’t rate them by numbers, right, they’re just what category am I? Did think put me in, like, the buffoon category? Which category am I in?

 

 STU: They put you in leaders.

 

 GLENN: Leaders? Hum. And Sarah Palin wrote it. I didn’t know that.

 

 STU: Yeah. That’s great.

 

 GLENN: Oh, boy. Have you read it?

 

 STU: Yeah. He just read it. It’s great.

 

 GLENN: Who would have thought a history buff with a quirky sense of humor and a chalkboard could make for such make such riveting television. Glenn’s like the high school government teacher so many wish they had, charting and connecting ideas with chalk dusted fingers, kicking it old school instead of becoming just another talking head show host. Self taught, he has become America’s professor of common sense, sharing earnestly sought knowledge with an audience hungry for truth. Glenn, 46, tackles topics the other news shows would regard as arcane. Considered his desire progressive movement, he’s doing to progressives with Ronald Reagan did to liberals, explaining it’s a damaged brand. His love for the founding fathers inspires others to learn and to respect our nation’s history. Best of all, Glenn delights in driving the self proclaimed powers that be crazy. The whole country awaits the red phone ringing. Even his critics, whom he annihilates in ratings, have to admire his amazing ability to galvanize everyday Americans to better themselves and peacefully engage their government. Though he sometimes dismisses himself as an awe, shucks guy or just a rodeo clown, he is really an inspiring patriot who was once at the bottom but now makes a much needed difference from the very, very top.

 

 Wow. That is really nice.

 

 PAT: That’s cool. That is really nice.

 

 GLENN: Would you remind me to write to her today? That is really nice. Let’s see if we can get her on the phone. Call her. That’s really nice. Is she on the list?

 

 STU: I don’t know. I’m not aware.

 

 PAT: You would think she would have to be.

 

 GLENN: Here’s Mark Andrews. This is laughable, uneducated trailer trash writing about a cretin. Love for founding matters? Which would those be, Sarah? Do you even know who they are?

 

 STU: Yes. Sarah Palin is on the list and guess who wrote hers. Ted Nugent.

 

 GLENN: Oh, Ted Nugent. What does he write about her?

 

 STU: If Sarah Palin played a loud, grinding instrument, she would be in my band. The patriotic soul of our forefathers are alive and well in Sarah, in the way she lives, what she says, and how she dedicates herself to make America better in these interesting times. She represents the good, while exposing the bad and ugly. She embraces the critical duty of we, the people, by participating in this glorious experiment in self government. The tsunami of support proves that Sarah, 46, represents what many Americans know to be common and sensible. Her rugged individualism, self reliance, and Herculean work ethic resonate now more than ever in a country spinning away from these basics that made the U.S.A. the last best place. Who we are driven to who we are, driven to be assets to our families, communities, and our beloved country connects with the principles that Sarah Palin embodies. We now we know that bureaucrats and even more Fedzilla are not the solution. They are the problem. I’m proud to share a moose barbecue campfire with Palin with the Palin family anytime, so long as I can shoot the moose.

 

 GLENN: She’s great. So, who’s on the here’s the full list of leaders. Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Is that Brazil? Is that the president of Brazil?

 

 STU: He looks the guy from the Dos Equis commercials, the most fascinating man in the world.

 

 GLENN: I don’t know that one. JT Wang, I know him. Admiral Mike Mullin, Barack Obama. Ron Bloom, the guy who says, oh, we generally agree with Mao that power comes from the barrel of a gun.

 

 STU: Well, that is a that’s a way to leap inches and the capitalism, the free market is nonsense.

 

 STU: Leading us in the direction.

 

 GLENN: Hoto Maya.

 

 STU: I love him.

 

 GLENN: Dom meek, Nancy Pelosi, Sarah Palin, Salam Fiyad,, John Kyle, Glenn Beck, Aniece Parker, Tid Jane Thigh Yum, Jenny Beth Martin, Christine La Far Day, Recep Tayyip Eredogan

 

 STU: There’s a lot of people I don’t know in the world.

 

 GLENN: Stanley McCystal, Manmhan Singh

 

 PAT: And these are leaders, let’s keep in mind. Whom are they leading?

 

 GLENN: I don’t know. Bow Exalie, Mark Carney, Sister Carol Keenan, Sheik Rafe him. Robin Lee, Scott Brown

 

 STU: Yeah. It’s a big list there.

 

 GLENN: I only know, like, three I have to go to this thing on I think it’s Tuesday, and none of I don’t have any suits that fit me anymore. I’m just as big as a house. I have to go and get, like, a I said to Chris, because he’s coming with me because my wife is, like, I’m not going to that, I’m, like, come on. I’ve got something. She’s, like, no. I think I’m out of town. I’m, like, come on. I’m going to be out of town. You’re not going to be out of town. Oh, yes. I will. I’m not going to go.

 

 So, I’ve got to go and I’ve got to go stand and talk to Bozi Yi and Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

 

 STU: But that’s not it. You’re going to be hanging with Lady Gaga.

 

 GLENN: Hang on just a second.

 

 STU: This is fun.

 

 GLENN: Wait. These are heroes. Bill Clinton is a hero.

 

 STU: You you there. There you go.

 

 GLENN: Phil Mickelson, I agree with Phil Mickelson.

 

 STU: Ben Stiller

 

 GLENN: Why’s hero?

 

 STU: Because

 

 GLENN: Why?

 

 STU: Zoolander was pretty funny.

 

 GLENN: I don’t know any of these people. Serena Williams

 

 STU: Do you mean

 

 PAT: You know Serena Williams. She’s the tennis.

 

 GLENN: But Jet Li of

 

 STU: Why isn’t he a hero?

 

 STU: He can karate chop people. Does that stuff and kicks people in the face.

 

 GLENN: I hope Taylor Swift is going to be there.

 

 STU: That’s awesome. Are you kidding me?

 

 GLENN: Simon Cowell is on.

 

 STU: Neal Patrick Harris.

 

 PAT: Oh, Ricky

 

 GLENN: How do you say his name?

 

 STU: I can see you and Prince in the corner, hanging out. That’s a comfortable conversation.

 

 GLENN: Who are the thinkers?

 

 STU: Sandra Bullock’s going to be there.

 

 GLENN: Steve Jobs.

 

 STU: You can get a scoop, perhaps.

 

 PAT: James Cameron is going to be there! Awesome! He’s been talking about you all the time. He seems completely obsessed with you.

 

 GLENN: Where is he? What’s

 

 STU: He’s No. 25 on the artist list.

 

 GLENN: On the artist list. And coming in at No. 25, James Cameron. Now I have to go. Hey, Jimmy, how are you doing, buddy?

 

 STU: Steve Jobs will be. Thereof, I mean, at least they’re on the list. I don’t know if they’re going to show.

 

 GLENN: It’s such a weird he went last time because I was invited because I wrote the you notice that Rush Limbaugh is not on there

 

 STU: He was last year, though.

 

 GLENN: Yeah. I know and I wrote the thing for Rush Limbaugh and so I went and it was so uncomfortable. I’m sitting at this table with a bunch of people who just hate my guts and but this time I guess it will be a little more entertaining because now I’m on the list. Now I’m on the list and I can just sit at the table and go, I’m on the same list as you.

 

 STU: For no other reason

 

 GLENN: How does that feel, Jimmy?

 

 STU: I think there could be a really, nice comfortable conversation with you and Sonya Sotomayor. I think that would be interesting. You guys could cover some interesting ground. I think there’s going to be a lot of good stories after this event.

 

 GLENN: There you go. There you go. Okay. So, there it is, the Time 100 and it’s an honor just to be nominated. It is. And then you have to go to the event and so then the shine kind of comes off. Back in just a minute.
