-Headline of the day-
"Beck: Obama is 'dividing the nation' by reacting 'so rapidly to Haiti.'"

Teary-eyed lunatic Glenn Beck told the audience of his radio show, My Unmedicated Life, that by reacting to the earthquake in Haiti, Preident Obama is destroying America.

"I also believe this is dividing the nation... to where the nation sees him react so rapidly on Haiti and yet he couldn’t react rapidly on Afghanistan," he sid. "He couldn’t react rapidly on Ft. Hood. He couldn’t react rapidly on our own airplanes with an underwear bomber... it doesn’t make sense. [...] Three different events and Haiti is the only one. I think personally that it deepens he divide to see him react this rapidly to Haiti."

OK, so let's see if we can follow this reasoning; Obama didn't react to things fast enough for Glenn in the past, so getting right on the ball this time is the worst thing ever...

Nope, can't follow that at all.

In case you're wondering, the report tells us, "Polling shows that majorities of Americans approved of Obama’s handling of the Christmas Day plot and that it didn’t divide the country."

Not that Glenn didn't give dividing the country a damned good try. (Think Progress, with audio clip)

-Bonus HotD-
"Limbaugh: Will Haitians Also Need To Face Death Panels?"

No, that's not some sort of parodic portmanteau [like that there fancy talk?] of two different wingnut memes, that's an actual Rush question.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; what a useless, useless man Rush Limbaugh is. (Mediaite, with audio clip)
