You Can Have Ours

The Christian Science Monitor has an op-ed piece with the provocative title, "Britain needs a Glenn Beck." How could I not read that? I think the author makes a good point- that in this day and age, to forbid television journalists from expressing or promoting a particular point of view amounts to a violation of human rights- but seriously, couldn't you come up with a better metaphor than Beck? Still, if Britain wants Glenn Beck, I for one have no problem. In fact, I'm all for it. I think it would be endlessly entertaining to watch him rant about living in a country even more "socialist" and welfare-oriented than the US. I'm also curious how long it would be before he started perceiving the US as a threat to his and Britain's existence.

I am all for it, just so long as they take ours off our hands.
