Glenn Beck’s Farewell Address

In the entry, “Beck’s confusing change of direction,” Clark Coleman writes:

I realize you linked to the Daily Caller story, but that web page might disappear someday. I think Beck’s words of wisdom should be preserved in as many places as possible. Imagine if the Gettysburg Address had disappeared because of a blunder by some ISP (Internet Service Provider)?

In particular, we need to preserve this paragraph:

“I want to take a couple of minutes and address something personal between you and me. This is something that, something that I have been thinking about for a very long time. When Fox was generous enough to offer me the time at 5:00, I originally didn’t take them up on it. I turned them down. One reason—I didn’t want to do this. I hated doing it at the other place. This place is sweet in comparison. But I also knew—believe it or not, anybody who knows me in my real life, as the wee little Erin will tell you, too—I avoid on confrontation like nobody’s business. That’s why I’m forced, but also I don’t like it. I don’t like conflict, but sometimes you have to stand.”

I think that pretty well sums things up.

LA replies:

Indeed it does. And to think that a reader accused me of a “cheap shot” for saying that Beck was meandering and incoherent!
