GLENN: So we're talking about how out of step congress is and Washington is with the American people. There are those who I think are absolutely taking us to a place of hell and then those who are just like, well, whatever. "Why read the bill? Why read?" They have been in so long, it doesn't matter anymore. They are either well intentioned and just clueless or they've just been, beaten down so corrupt and they are just, "Whatever, I just do whatever he says. Oh, no, wait, he is not paying today. He's paying today. I go wherever he says today. I get a kick out of these people who say don't just follow the money."
STU: Everyone's getting on Brad Sherman, though. I mean, it's possible that he just watched every minute of coverage from CBS, ABC, and NBC and the Washington Post and the New York Times and just never heard of the story.
PAT: That's true.
GLENN: You know what we should have done? Play the audio again, if you will, of Brad Sherman and listen to the crowd. This is somebody saying, hey, what about the Black Panthers and Holder and the DOJ not pursuing these kinds of cases? Here's what he says.
SHERMAN: As to the Black Panther Party, I'm simply not aware of that case.
GLENN: I've never heard — this is America. I've never heard anything like this before.
PAT: Well —
GLENN: We are living in historic days, historic days. How long have I been saying this? I've been telling you these days would be coming. They are here. Keep a diary. Keep a video camera by you. Your children and your grandchildren will ask you where you were during these days. What were you thinking? What do you remember from that? Believe me, they won't get it in the history books. They are going to have to get it from you.
Now, I can guarantee you while everybody was screaming, if somebody had kept their head and said, "Excuse me, wait a minute, hang on, everybody. Congressman, can you tell me anything about Mel Gibson and his racism?" I guarantee you he would have known.
STU: Yeah, he wouldn't have missed that story.
GLENN: No, he wouldn't have missed that story.
PAT: No question.
GLENN: Because they are still covering that today. Here's what — I was watching MSNBC and Fox side by side today in my office and I have all these TV monitors. Dom, show on the Insider Extreme the way the monitors are. I have all these monitors and there are three stacked up, and this is just like this in my office. And then there's another monitor over here at the top that has several different websites that I monitor all the time and so it just cycles through all these websites.
So today I was watching Fox and MSNBC. I look up and Fox is doing a story on the Black Panthers because there's new amazing audio from the Black Panthers. And what was MSNBC doing? A round panel about the NAACP claiming that the tea parties are racist and how racist the tea parties are. We are in two separate countries. We are Balkanizing ourselves.
STU: Notice the Fox News country is much more populated?
GLENN: Yes, I do. I do. And I don't mind being crowded with those people, either. But we're Balkanizing ourselves. We must not do it. We must not do it.
So I'm watching this and I'm thinking, okay, half the country knows, if you watch Fox, you know about the Panthers. But have they even covered that on, the Today Show? How many of our wives watch the Today Show and get their news from the Today Show? And they are still doing, "So and you're gonna make a sweater out of coat hangers?"
PAT: Here's the latest poll fashion line.
GLENN: I'm goo goo for ga ga.
STU: They are not a hard news show.
GLENN: I know that but at some point, have you noticed? I mean, did anybody see the show last night?
GLENN: I testified, I testified to the power of the atonement of Jesus Christ on television last night!
PAT: That's weird. That was the same thing that Chris Matthews was doing on MSNBC.
STU: That's ripping off his material.
PAT: Ripping him off again.
GLENN: No, that was Saul Alinsky, he testified to the atonement of Saul Alinsky.
PAT: That's right.
GLENN: Here's the thing. We are entering a different time. Times have changed. But some of these people are still acting like it hasn't. And there's two separate philosophies.
