Glen Beck, health care lies, and comic books

"To post this video and then dismiss Beck's narrative as simply bizarre is to completely miss the point. Non-sense and anti-intellectualism form the crux of what Beck is about. What you can bank on is a delusional form of argumentation and case-making where simple and highly repetitive hate- and scare-mongering is couched around a (indecipherable) internal logic that, by virtue of Beck's conviction, convinces those susceptible that he knows exactly what he's talking about. It's textbook paranoia."

* Always a good read, ICv2 interviews DC Comics CEO Paul Levitz.
* "It would be a mistake to dismiss cartoonist R. Sikoryak's highly stylized mashups of comics and classic literature as mere parody."
