Uh... right.

Over at The Huffington Post, Robbie Genet suggests Obama should really be appearing on the Glenn Beck show, to demonstrate to all (and especially the Fox-watching robots) that Beck is a naked emperor:↓

While I'm interested to see Obama's impending visit to the View, I'd like to see him break through directly to the Fox audience, who are [sic] being fed a very skewed and dangerous narrative through a calculated filter. Nine of the top ten rated news shows are on Fox, which reaches a unique audience of Americans that tune out most if not all other sources of news and information. The few million people tuning into Fox and tuning out any opposing take on reality are in dire need of a dose of actual discourse, not just one extremely slanted view. Obama needs to reach these people directly and there is no better way than to go into the "lions den" and have an unfiltered discussion with Beck in front of a massive audience for what would be one of the most watched television events in recent times. It would be watched by not just every single Fox supporter but by tens of millions of other people curious to see what transpires....

Beck is only dangerous because he is so far unconfronted [sic] in the bullsh*t arena. Obama needs to put on his hip waders, hold his nose and confront not just one deranged television personality but the entire Tea Party culture that has been constructed around Beck's white minstrel show. Obama would be a breath of fresh- nay, truthy [sic]- air and as always, a house of cards needs only a strong enough breeze to send the whole thing tumbling down. Confront your critics on their own turf and illuminate your vision direct and unfiltered. It is the only way to break through to that segment of the population and show them that Emporer [sic] Beck is indeed naked. Now that would be Must See TV!

Okay, let's have a look at this one point at a time. The Fox audience is being fed a very skewed and dangerous narrative? I guess he means that hearing from both sides of the aisle is "skewed and dangerous". Anyone who listens to Fox and the MSM knows damn well who is skewed and dangerous.

"Nine of the top ten news shows are on Fox which reaches a unique audience of Americans that tune out most if not all sources of news and information"? Where do I begin on this one? First of all, the writer clearly doesn't understand how ratings work. You don't get 90% of the ratings unless most of the people in the country are watching you. To suggest that the majority of the people are wrong sounds an awful lot like everyone in the band being out of step "except my Johnny". Furthermore, what is so unique about this audience? Is it possibly that even though they're in the vast majority that they still disagree with you and your close-knit elitist group of friends? Lastly, what makes you suspect that they "tune out most if not all sources of news and information"? Is it just more convenient that way? Arguments like that make it seem like you're the one who is one-sided and tune out most if not all contrary sources of news and information.

"The few million people tuning into Fox and tuning out any opposing take on reality are in dire need of a dose of actual discourse, not just one extremely slanted view." Doctor, heal thyself.

"Beck is only dangerous because he is so far unconfronted [sic] in the bullsh*t arena." Actually, Beck is dangerous because even though he might be an overzealous personality, he's also right on many occasions. The truth is only "dangerous" to liars and sneaks.

"Obama needs to put on his hip waders, hold his nose and confront not just one deranged television personality but the entire Tea Party culture that has been constructed around Beck's white minstrel show." Liberals just can't resist potty talk because "peeeeeeeYOU that poopy is stinky!" Anyway, Obama needs to put on his hip waders? When does he ever take them off? That guy spends every waking hour shoveling bullshit in every direction around him and every sleeping hour dreaming about doing it. Lumping the Tea Party with Beck is a feeble attempt to discredit the biggest threat to Liberals in my lifetime. Contrary to what the Left would have you believe, the Tea Party does not have a leader, they don't have a clear demographic, and they're not beholden to anyone. These three facts make the Tea Party a tremendous threat to people who only know how to follow, work with minorities only because of affirmative action, and who have achieved only through giving and receiving "favors".

Finally and lastly, he wants to see Beck naked? WHY?
