Still, it is better expressed and told than anything on Beck's program. This is what Rhetoric should be. Not just overzealous emotions (which Beck and others do so well), but real reasons, even if imaginative and over-the-top.
Last night stewart lampooned olberman and it was hilarious, occasionally I watch olberman when he actually calls out the greed and corruption of washington dc but yea, i'll post the link to the clip as soon as i can find it
