As the folks at "Morning Joe" were sharing guffaws over Glenn Beck's keerazee schtick the other day, some of them were speculating that Stephen Colbert might have to give up his parody-of-a-right-wing-talker act, since Beck had reached a level of self-parody that Colbert couldn't hope to match.
The key line came after Colbert played the audio of Beck trashing the 9/11 victims' families back in 2005:
You know, it took me about a year to start hating the 9/11 victims' families. ... I don't hate all of them, I hate about, probably about ten of them. But when I see 9/11 victim family, you know, on television, or whatever, I'm just like, 'Oh, shut up.' I'm so sick of them. Because they're always complaining. And we did our best for them.
Good point. The 912 Project is not for families directly affected by 9/11. Just people building their careers on it.
