Ah, if only former Rep. Eric Massa truly was the “ray of sunshine” Glenn Beck was so keenly wishing for ... before Massa actually showed up on Beck’s set and dashed the Fox News host’s hopes of mining Massa’s tale of persecution at the, er, hands of naked Rahm Emanuel for all it was worth. Unfortunately, Jon Stewart knows a little about having intense political discussions with other grown men in the altogether.  —KA

It looked like the other way around to me, Massa showed Glenn Beck up as a charlatan trying to denigrate, accuse, denounce, malign, traduce, slur and smear progressives, liberals, socialists, unions and the populace in Hitleresque fashion after Rupert Murdoch’s own heart.  Glenn Beck is a genteel peasant suck-up toadying to Rupert Murdoch’s conservatism for advantage.

What Glenn Beck proved to those who actually WATCH his show is that Massa is just another product of the “Politics as usual” mindset in DC.  Although I rarely agree with the man, Kennedy was right.  Congress is wasting far too much time on idiots like Massa instead of addressing the serious issues facing our nation.  Kudos to Beck for showing Massa as the fool that he is.

Glenn Beck just couldn’t get his Hitleresque hyperbole, sophism and propaganda against progressives, liberals, unions, socialists, socialism, community and the populace going,  even though he consistently tried.  Massa had been kicked out of Congress for groping and Beck wanted him to spill his guts,  but he just wasn’t mad enough to let Glenn Beck get away with his hyperbole, sophism and propaganda.  Maybe if Massa gets some counseling he could return to Congress, because he certainly didn’t put anyone in Congress down, even though Beck wanted him to really bad.    Definitely sour gropes for Glenn Beck.  I truly appreciate Massa not giving fodder to Glenn Beck’s propaganda mill.
