Today’s sign of the apocalypse…or maybe that it won’t occur for at least six months

The modern American media’s preeminent knuckleheaded sociopath, Glenn Beck, is “pre-selling” tickets to an appearance in Greensboro next April. Tickets range from $95 -$500. That is not a misprint: some poor, pathetic souls are going pay 500 friggin’ bucks to listen to this moron.

Oh, and if you’re planning on bringing the kids, be sure to note the warning that “AGES 2 AND UP ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A TICKET FOR ENTRY.”

On the bright side, the fact that this is not scheduled for six months, may indicate that Beck’s worries about the impending collapse of civilization and the need to invest in gold may not be quite as dire as previously thought.

    Beck’s from my neck of the woods, Mt. Vernon, WA. He has always been a huckster. He just finally found an audience to sell crazy to, and charges them a handsome fee.

    The guy doesn’t believe any of the stuff he says. He just wants the money. If the left would pay him more, he’d switch so sides with Usain Bolt-esque quickness.
