Beck On Why Wingnuts Voted For McCain: 'I Mean, He's Old. Maybe We Get Sarah Palin In The First Term'

Glenn Beck had Erick Erickson on his radio show today to talk about his plans for a Republican bloodbath over Sarah Palin, of which Beck thoroughly approves.

Indeed, Beck believes most conservatives voted for John McCain in the hopes that he would soon die:

I mean, I have to tell you if I heard once, I heard 1,000 times from people, and I never said this, never said this on the air because you just don't say these things, but I heard a million times from people, "I'm going to vote for John McCain and, you know, I mean, he's old. Maybe we get Sarah Palin in the first term." You know what I mean?

Of course, you could occasionally find wingnuts saying such things in public during the campaign, but now that I guess the election is over, the lid is off and the bats are flying out of the belfry.

ThinkProgress has the audio.
