One more on Beck and then I'll stop. Comment from Metafilter: "Beck's eventual humiliating scandal is going to be spectacular… But this dude is just beyond ego. He's messianic. So was Jimmy Swaggart. And between his Murdoch-funded carnival act and his con game with Goldline he's just as greedy if not more. The man is a righteous glutton. The only question as to what Beck's going to convince himself he's allowed to have- devotees be damned- is when it'll happen- how old and what gender."
