I’ve Been to the Mountaintop: Stephen Colbert castigates Glenn Beck for his pitiful attempt at channeling MLK

Could some please help me with something?  Could someone please answer one simple question for me?  Why do people continue to even listen to Glenn Beck and his unique brand of pious, pretentious pomposity?  Recently I saw pictures of a Tea Party protest, and some lady was holding a sign which read, “Think you for telling us the truth, Glenn Beck!”.  What?  Huh?

And why does it take supposedly comedy themed shows like Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show and Stephen Colbert’s The Colbert Report to point out the gross inconsistencies in his message?  Is it because everything Beck says is so absolutely absurd that Comedy Central is perhaps the only logical place for it?
