Tea-Party At The Alamo?

Surely I'm not the only one that has realized the irony behind this.

Here's a bit of history for Glenn Beck and his compatriots that are going to be there.

In the early morning hours of March 6 the Mexican army launched an assault on the Alamo. The outnumbered Texians repulsed two attacks, but were unable to fend off a third. As Mexican soldiers scaled the walls, most of the Texian soldiers retreated into the long barracks or the chapel. Several small groups who were unable to reach these points attempted to escape and were killed outside the walls by the waiting Mexican cavalry. The Mexican soldiers fought room-to-room and soon had control over the Alamo. Between five and seven Texians may have surrendered; if so, they were quickly executed on Santa Anna's orders. Most eyewitness accounts reported between 182 and 257 Texian dead, while most Alamo historians agree that 400–600 Mexicans were killed or wounded. Of the Texians who fought during the battle, only two survived: Joe, spared because he was a slave, and Brigido Guerrero, a Mexican Army deserter who convinced Mexican soldiers he had been imprisoned. Women and children, primarily family members of the Texian soldiers, were questioned by Santa Anna and then released.

So, a man named "Joe" survived.

Wait, isn't Joe "The Gimmick" going to be with Sean Hannity in Atlanta?

Oh, and anyone recognize the music in this promo?

Did they ever bother to ask AC/DC what they think? Perhaps ask them if they can use their track? I doubt it. Just curious.
