Talk show conspiracy nut Glenn Beck on his radio show, dismissing talk of a Palin/Beck ticket in 2012:
BECK: First of all let me rule that out. Uh, Palin/Beck? Ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous.
CO-HOST: She’s far too smart for that.
BECK: No, I was just thinking, what, I’m gonna take back seat to a chick? (laughter all around)
CO-HOST: Oh, you’ve gotta be (indistinguishable), you’ve gotta be (indistinguishable). Of course, it’s Beck/Palin. [The second sentence might be Beck; it's hard to tell in the cross-talk.]
BECK: And while you’re at it, go shoot a bear. Make some stew! I’m hungry in here! (more laughter)
CO-HOST: That’s, that’s so great.
He was just joking, right? Just like he was joking here:
BECK: Please can we not? (CROSSTALK) No, no I’m just saying — Beck-Palin, I’ll consider. But Palin-Beck — can you imagine, can you imagine what an administration with the two of us would be like? What? Come on! She’d be yapping or something, and I’d say, “I’m sorry, why am I hearing your voice? I’m not in the kitchen.”
Actually, it sounds more like he got his little feelings hurt because Sarah Palin described him as “a hoot”. That wasn’t sufficiently respectful of his superior manhood, I guess, so he decided he needed to retaliate with a heaping dose of sexist BS.
Okay, “feminist” tea partiers, those of you who hang on Beck’s every word and love Palin because she makes you “proud to be a woman”, what do you think of this? It’s just harmless banter, right? Right? We all know the right has the greatest respect for women — as long as they keep to their place. Just ask Glenn Beck.
