Glenn Beck: the statement

I've been listening to the radio more as I drive from place to place trying to put my latest business together (on which, more later). I think Glenn Beck is the winner for drivetime in my area, not least because whenever he says something outrageous, one of the people in the studio quickly responds by reading part of "the statement". For your reference,, it consists of:

The following is a statement from Mercury Radio Arts regarding the latest comment from Glenn Beck:

First of all, all of us are imperfect. (1) Glenn is really a very nice guy and he didn’t really mean it. (2) Besides, he’s very passionate about it (3), and it was the product of an emotional discussion. (4) We should all remember that this is not the sum total of this particular artists work. (5) I know you’d like to focus on language (6), but we should focus on the actions we can take to grow the economy and create jobs, instead of focusing on Kabuki theater. (7)

Which picks up, at each number, a referenced story by those whom Glenn has criticized and the apology, or non-apology, that followed. Have fun clicking the links once you're there.

It's nice to laugh while you're driving.
