#9 Osama Bin Laden is dead: break out the band!
While many went out of their way to make sure Osama Bin Laden received a 'proper' Muslim burial - Glenn Beck was not about to provide such courtesies. First of all, the guy was an embarrassment to the Muslim community. He was a crazy man who killed innocent people, period. Why in the world would that merit a 'proper Muslim burial'? It shouldn't, and instead Glenn gave news of Osama Bin Laden's death the treatment it deserved: A giant marching band celebration! It was possible the best show open Glenn ever did on Fox - relive it HERE.
Addiction to Spider-Man
Another great moment in 2011 for Glenn personally was having his addiction to the Broadway production of Spider-Man result in a chance meeting with legendary U2 frontman Bono. To the disgust of many huge U2 fans on Glenn's staff, he admitted to not really liking U2's music, which sent Stu into a tailspin. Another celebrity meeting that Glenn Beck doesn't deserve, he argued. But the meeting probably was deserved considering Spider-Man had no bigger supporter than Glenn. After initially being panned by critics, Glenn's predictions may come true that Spider-Man could be one of the longest running plays in history.
