Follow Friday – Beck Hansen Edition

3 Sep

I know you’re not supposed to feed the trolls, but last weekend’s Glenn Beck rally caused entirely too much snark to ignore, which is why I want to shift some of the focus off GB and on to the BETTER Beck: Beck Hansen. This Beck is one of my favorite people ever, and his rally would be all about restoring microphones and turntables to modern America. Plus there would probably be lots of robots and synthesizers and banjos.  I tried to keep my snarky indignation over Glenn Beck and his fucked-up rally to a minimum because trolls feed on attention, but I love some of these GB tweets too much to exclude.

Pssst! If you haven’t already figured it out by now, I’m kind of liberal.
