Glenn Beck Discovers New Octave

I'm think I'm beginning to like Glenn Beck more and more. The less relevant he becomes as an actual force in political discourse, the more I can relax and appreciate the comic hilarity of his persona. Whether it's a put-on or whether he's authentically crazy is irrelevant. He is, bar none, the most entertaining television and radio personality out there. He's like a cross between Eric Bogosion in Talk Radio and the televangelist Robert Tilton. His popularity is still on the rise, but I'm comfortable in my assessment that very few people take him seriously. And those who do? Well, those are the people who will look to anyone willing to say what they want to hear...people I don't really concern myself with.

Beck's latest comedic offering comes via his radio show. It's a hilarious rant against a poor caller who is discussing health care reform. The whole clip is worthwhile, but if you want to skip ahead to about the 3:00 mark, you won't be disappointed. At the 3:31 mark Beck discovers a sound I've never quite heard before. It's...amazing.

Wow. Wow. That noise made Howard Dean's scream sound like James Earl Jones.
