Beck once claimed to be appalled that President Obama used the word "ass," but for this program he had no qualms what-so-ever in calling someone he does not like a name, "an ass." Obviously Beck was not really appalled that Obama used the word "ass," Beck just pretended to be appalled for dramatic effect. That is how Beck, the stage actor, rolls. He fakes it often when it comes to having certain emotions and principles.

For people reading this post without ever having seen Beck on his Fox stage, it is not obvious just how much Beck's house is made of extremely fragile glass. However, watch him on any of his shows on Fox, and it is clear that he is standing in front of this sugar-glassed house throwing rocks at his opponent, a labor leader. (Click on the hot link to The Daily Beck, above, for any show on any date.) This attack was completely gratuitous. This was a show segment about a new version of Three Little Pigs supposedly (verify, don't trust him) being taught in the schools now. It had absolutely nothing to do with unions or organized labor. So why did Beck bring the graphic above into the discussion?
Beck, who often comes across like a dry-drunk, @sshole, is the last person on television who should be calling people he disagrees with an ass. For reference, three of the attitudes common with dry drunks seem to fit Mr. Beck, the ass on the stage, like a glove:
- Grandiosity – Grandiosity basically means a return to a self-centered, ‘the world revolves around’ me attitude. In 12 Step literatures this is the concept of being “self-centered in the extreme”. It does not have to necessarily mean that I believe I am the best; it can also be seeking attention through playing the victim or sitting on the pity pot. (See Beck's 8-28 rally on the National Mall)
- Impulsivity – A common attitude or observable behavior of people with addiction problems is poor impulse control. We tend to do what we want when we want, with little regard for self harm or hurting others around us. Impulsivity can be linked with grandiosity to engage in behaviors designed to make us the center of attention. (Note how Beck goes off script)
- Being judgmental – This is a very destructive attitude for people in recovery. When we judge a person as being better than or less than, we are setting up a situation where we inflate our egos feeling better than other people. On the other hand if we judge ourselves to be on the short end we can feel bitter and generate low self-esteem. Being judgmental is a low self-esteem generator. (Calling people he disagrees with an "ass.")
It is true (supposedly) that Glenn Beck went through the 12 step program, but that is where some dry drunks can be found. This is not an argument that Glenn Beck is a dry-drunk, no matter how much the evidence points in that direction. It is not possible to make a definitive diagnosis from afar, but this Reviewer is just asking: why does Glenn Beck act such an @sshole? Beck seems friendly and warm in his individual and private relationships, but on the television, he comes across as an @sshole. This is not an argument that Glenn Beck is an @sshole, just that he plays one on TV. Apparently, this is appealing to his "Christian" followers.
not an @sshole, but portrays one on TV
