by Glenn Beck
GLENN: Let's go to Jesse in Richmond. Jesse is going to what college are you going to, Jesse?
CALLER: Glenn, I'm going to John Tyler Community College.
GLENN: Okay. And your professor.
GLENN: We wouldn't say that he's an idiot, but he's been arguing with the new book.
GLENN: Okay. And one of your classmates brought the book in, which is your first mistake. You don't, you don't bring it you bring the list of arguments in.
GLENN: And you look for them in the footnotes at the end and you say when he says, where did you get that fact, you say, New York Times. And they're like, oh, well, yes, okay, New York Times. See what I mean?
CALLER: Yeah, yeah. No, I understand. I actually was caught on quoting the 5,000 Year Leap earlier in the same semester from the same guy.
GLENN: You moron.
CALLER: So anyways, that seems to happen. But it was funny because he tried to demonize you throughout that day. But the next class we came in on Wednesday.
CALLER: The extra credit that we have for our final is to find incorrect or errors in your book, any one of your books, and for every error we find in one of your books, we get an extra point on our final. And I was like, well, wait a minute, wait a minute.
GLENN: You have got to be kidding me.
CALLER: That's not fair.
GLENN: Ask him in fairness if he will do the same with Al Gore's book.
CALLER: I did that. I said, okay, so is it possible you're saying, you know, he's an extreme right side. Okay, fair enough. What about extreme left, you know? Can I take somebody on the extreme left and do that and he said, sure, but I can't think of anybody, so no. I'm like, what?
GLENN: I can't think of anybody? Okay. We can find them.
CALLER: So there goes a question for you. Can you find me an extreme left side?
GLENN: Yes. Michael Moore, any of Michael Moore's books, any of Al Gore's books.
GLENN: I mean, you will have so many points, we'll help you do it. You'll have so many extra points on Al Gore on his, you know, on his Inconvenient Truth.
CALLER: Now, the only catch, this is a political science class. So everything I find in there, I'll have to refute with my social science book. So it's typically going to be something that's more logistical than it is actually the world is coming to an end due to this catastrophic, you know, one degree in temperature.
STU: You know what's an easy one, Glenn, in Arguing With Idiots there's a whole section picking apart Michael Moore's movie about healthcare. I mean, it's point by point.
GLENN: There you go. There you go. There's your extra credit. Look, take my name off it. Put all of the footnotes on that chapter and turn it in. Done. You're not wait, wait. You are not plagiarizing if I give you permission, right?
STU: I don't know if that's the way it works. I think when you're in class, you're supposed whatever. This class, who cares.
PAT: Remember, remember when President Obama quoted Governor Duval in one of his speeches an exact quote and everybody said, you ripped him off! No, he told me to use it.
GLENN: So you have my permission to take the healthcare chapter which takes Michael Moore's Sicko absolutely apart and use that.
GLENN: But don't use the footnotes.
CALLER: Will do. One final note, something I thought was hilarious. When I was saying, you know, that he can't think of any, another girl that sits to the front of me ended up saying, you know, she just kind of mumbled this. She was like, well, I guess it kind of comes down to some are doing it for the money and just some are doing it to enlighten others. I was like... what? I guess that's suggesting that Glenn Beck's only reason to do it is to make money and everyone else is just to enlighten others.
GLENN: Well, you know, that is can I tell you something? That is the excuse of people who don't make money while enlightening others. You know? Because I, quite honestly I did it to enlighten others and make money.
PAT: You evil, evil person.
GLENN: For those people who just can't seem to put two things together and they're like, well, it's, it's... it's an academic book. No, no, it's because you can't write your thoughts down and also have it as a commercial success. Because you're an idiot.
GLENN: Okay. Jesse.
GLENN: You have to send me your paper and you have to send me the results on this, and I have to meet your class. You guys have to come up on a field trip here in New York because you sound like the guy that everybody's giving their professor crap. Like, nope, you're an idiot.
CALLER: There were about half the kids there that were just about laughing their heads off while we were trying to figure out what this extra credit was going to be.
GLENN: Does everybody in the class have a copy of the book?
CALLER: No, I can say that they don't. I actually don't have one. I was going to buy one.
GLENN: You are kidding me. How many people in your class?
CALLER: I would guess about 24.
GLENN: Hang on just a second. I'm going to put you on hold. Keith is going to get the address. I'm going to send 24 I'll send you 30 books, okay?
GLENN: And I need to get the name of your professor because I'm going to make one out to him. Hang on just a second. That will get you extra credit.
STU: This is going to be constant F's. There's going to be a nonstop F parade in this class. It's going to be I would say that there's about a 0% chance that there's going to be a passing grade issued by this teacher.
GLENN: There's not a shot of there's not a shot of you passing the class at all.
All right, back in a second.
