It's the new Cornell

I heard this on the radio, and it's too funny not to pass on: Glenn Beck is starting his own "University!"

Now I'm absolutely positive that his scholarly credentials are impeccable, and Universities will be falling over themselves to recruit Beck-U graduates for graduate school.

I find it curious that he thinks the Federalist Papers are a mandate for limited government. I thought the Federalist Papers were actually advocating the larger government, and it was the Anti-Federalists who were wary of the expansion of governmental power. But they largely lost that argument (though they got a few concessions in the mix known as the "Bill of Rights") and nobody likes the losing team, not the least TV pundits.

Is it just me, or does "Beck-U" Sound like a curse? "Beck-U buddy!" "Oh yeah, well "Beck-U in the face!" I think we can all agree that this kind of profanity needs kept away from children (won't somebody think of them?)

If morons want to throw him their $ instead of giving it to whack-job wannabe candidates who quit, then that's fine by me. Besides, nothing at BU is accredited in any way.

Hmmmmmm, the tea baggers can now claim a degree from an online, non-accredited "university". Does that make them an elite? The type of person they love to hate? Do they hate themselves? I guess we will never know what goes on in their brains. If anything.
