    What's This All About, Then?

    I’m not a nice person. I know this because Glenn Beck told me so.

    Okay, perhaps he didn’t tell me directly.  What actually happened was this: in early March our resident emperor-pundit (and self-described rodeo clown) suggested that if we hadn’t gone and screwed up the whole following-the-Commandments thing, then perhaps our angry and vengeful God wouldn’t have slaughtered the innocents in Japan, where a recent tsunami had devastated large stretches of seacoast.

    When an entertainer forgets that he’s an entertainer somebody needs to remind him. Beck, a man who admits to enjoying controversy, had crossed a line I didn’t even know I’d drawn. So a few days later, on March 15th, I decided to take a stab at the emperor.

    I created a Twitter persona--@BeckIsALib--and launched ideas into the Twitterverse with the hopes that I might seed a change in the way we think about entertainers who commandeer our political dialog and who cater to our extreme and base behaviors while pushing their own ideological agendas.   I want to cajole, prod, provoke and coax others out of their comfortable beliefs.

    Along the way I developed a new political awareness; I realized that I was a Consiberal; I believe there are many more of us out there.
