I hit the ground running (again) today. I’d procrastinated going to the grocery store for about two weeks now (I’m working on a record; 2 weeks is the most I’ve been able to delay it so far!), but the children were languishing for food and drink. Sheesh. Isn’t a roof over their heads enough?! hee hee.
ANYWAY. (Boy, I can ramble). I got a chance to go out, fight the maniacal crowds at WalMart, and listen to the Glenn Beck Show on the way home. I haven’t heard him much; I’ve never listened to a complete show; but the husband sometimes comes home with the funniest (and most common-sensical) stories about Glenn Beck. And I’ve been hearing a little bit about Beck’s new book, Arguing With Idiots. Apparently, he has skits on his radio show reflecting the book (or vice versa, for all I know). It was HILARIOUS!!!!! Today, Beck and his sidekick Pat (who portrayed a verrry convincing “idiot” with a voice that sounded like Marvin the Martian) duked it out about income taxation. The argument always defaulted in to how Beck is overweight. It has me pounding the steering wheel with laughter!
I don’t think Beck is fat. I also cannot comprehend why he would feel insecure about it. But he handles the attacks very well with his self-deprecating humor and his stellar answers to the political problems our country is facing.
So I looked for the book, Arguing With Idiots, at my local library. WOULD you BELIEVE there are only TWO copies of this #1 New York Times best-selling book in the entire THREE county area in which I live?! Is that crap or what? Well, it’s something I’d buy, anyway. I saw the audio book on sale at Buy.com, selling for just under $22 (Buy.com has free shipping on eligible book orders over $25). I think the audio book is narrated by Beck himself, which would make it even better.
Have you read the book? If so, what did you think? Is it worth buying now, or holding out until my library *finally* gets it. Remember, I live in Upstate New York– it could be YEARS before Becks’ book is allowed over the border, heh heh. :bangwall:
