Karma And Irony In It's Purest Form

Even though this is Glenn Beck we're talking about, this really shouldn't be framed as a joke.

I particularly like the part where he takes the predictable jab at healthcare reform and then complains, in jest really as he doesn't need to worry about the price of healthcare, that the doctor is going to charge him a ridiculous amount of money for essentially telling him nothing.

And then cut to 2:44 for the obligatory "tearing up". This is where Beck delves into his conservative preacher schtick.

To be completely honest with the three people that actually read my blog, I'm not entirely sure I believe Beck. It's just this sort of thing that plays to the base instincts of not just conservatives, but all of us. It's the pity-party narrative. But Beck, being the showman that he is, won't just stop at telling his audience that he could completely loose his sight within the next 12 months, he has to tie in healthcare reform, religion, and family.

From my perspective, if this is actually true, I see this as something that can be embodied in one word - karma.

I'm sure the Vicks vaporub he smears under his eyes to bring on the fake tears haven't helped any. He's such a fear mongering swine who has done so much harm to this country that I have absolutely no sympathy for him whatsoever. As far as I'm concerned it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
