Reason TV on the Glenn Beck rally

Here's Reason TV on yesterday's Glenn Beck rally:

Beck occasionally flirts with small "l" libertarianism. Some people think this is scary. I'd rather have him inside our tent and pissing out, than outside our tent and pissing in.

Returning to GMU yesterday, youngest son got caught on the Metro with the dispersing Glenn Beck crowd. "So many white people with flag shirts," was his trenchant observation.

While billed as promoting "Honor and Religion in America," this was really about promoting Glenn Beck. Which is certainly his right. Just call it for what it is.

As for pissing in vs. pissing out, you'd best pray the wind doesn't change.

Ha! Right-o, Dr. Ralph... and the wind changes around him like the swirling winds in a Chicago plaza. I've cut him a little slack here and there recently. He's come out as anti-pre-emptive wars of aggression and has even not been pro-anti gay marriage (talk about wind changes - not pro-anti..).

Anyhow, if the theme of the rally was "America needs faith to transform, and it begins by transforming YOURSELF" - then I'm OK with that. If it was "We need more laws that put God in command of the country and whoop up on them Muslims"... then I'd have more of a problem with that.
