I am not making this up. NPR's Morning Edition:

Beck, a recovering alcoholic, says he needed to bottom out before he could recover. He says the conservative movement might need to do the same thing...

"Let [Democrat] Barack Obama get in, let them put these policies in. It will either work, or it will be a disaster."

Such a scenario would be good for the conservative movement, Beck says: "Jimmy Carter gave us Ronald Reagan. Bill Clinton gave us Newt Gingrich. Every time there is this swing to extreme, the other side comes back with real conservative values, and you start to move forward again."

Beck says the conservative he admires most these days is former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), who was defeated for re-election in 2006. "I think this guy really has it. I think he really understands the world we live in right now."

NPR, are you having fun yet? Morning Edition is running a "Conservatives Hate McCain" festival all week. Yesterday, they faked us out with an interview with the director of the Conservative Union. Today they had "noted conservative" Glenn Beck. And tomorrow they interview...wait for it...Grover Norquist.

I promise you, NPR, if you have Katherine Harris on by Friday I'll pledge for another tote bag. Honest.

Can you help us out?
