GLENN: Yes, our book Arguing With Idiots, it is coming out September 20 something or other.
GLENN: September 22nd. And it's got a lovely picture of me that's not going to infuriate anybody. Not going to infuriate anybody. This thing is riddled with facts and it's 25 pages of fine print footnotes so you know exactly how we did our research. And it is the arguments against healthcare. It is the arguments against gun control. It's the arguments for the Constitution. You name it, this thing is just, it's the best piece of material we have ever done. And I know a lot of people in the audience will be going, ooh, wow, that's good. But for people who actually enjoy this program, they're going, ooh, wow, that ‑‑ no. It's really a good book. All right. Because we wanted to put it out because you're going to find yourself in an argument with an idiot that says things like this:
PAT: Yes, Mr. Beck, why? Why are you so afraid of diversity?
GLENN: I'm not afraid of diversity.
PAT: Why ‑‑
GLENN: I think diversity is good.
PAT: Oh, please. You were screaming and crying so hard last night on TV.
GLENN: I didn't cry on TV.
PAT: Oh, no, the FCC is going to ask ‑‑ there needs to be something other than fat old lard butt whitey haters on the radio. That's scary. I'm scared. Help me.
GLENN: First of all, there's plenty of diversity on the air. No one listens to that diversity, but they could. There's Air America, NPR. There's all kinds of radio stations that cater to minorities.
PAT: Oh, really? Name one. Name one voice of reason that anyone has ever heard of. Name one Barack Obama fan on the radio. Name one.
GLENN: Okay. Well, I can't name them by name because nobody listens to them. You know what I mean? But they could listen to them if they wanted to.
PAT: Well, isn't that convenient. You are leaving it to choice.
GLENN: Yes, I ‑‑ well, you know, that's exactly, that's exactly right. I mean, I thought you were all about a person's right to choose.
PAT: Yeah, abortions, not radio stations. Just look where the choice of the radio stations has gotten us so far. It's polluted the aid I don't waves with hatred, choosing SUVs to drive has polluted the air with climate change and killed polar bears and the cave‑dwelling Paiute trout and it's caused beavers to stop making dams.
GLENN: I don't think that is ‑‑
PAT: Your choice of food, it's driven up the cost of healthcare 239% in the last 0 years, Mr. Beck. If we keep going on this path, it will go up another 426,000% by next Tuesday. People are too stupid to make these important decisions, these important choices.
GLENN: Okay. So you trust their ability to choose to end the life of a baby but not to choose where they put their radio dial.
PAT: Right, unless they choose NPR.
GLENN: Well, that doesn't seem diverse to me.
PAT: Why? Because it doesn't include you? Is that your idea of diversity? You, you will day long? Don't we have that already?
GLENN: No, we ‑‑
PAT: Just think of this ‑‑ just think of it this way, if you would, Mr. Beck, if you are capable of doing it. Having just the NPR single broadcaster option. That will be like having what you eat all day long, one thing.
PAT: Jelly doughnuts.
PAT: It's a jelly doughnut diet and maybe with some pie to wash it all down. That should make you happy, Mr. Fatty Fat Fatso.
