Glenn Beck -- Look to Your Right!

I was a bit surprised to see someone actually to the right of Glenn Beck, on Beck's show.

From TPM comes this article about Texas Republican gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina, a Tea Partier who has been polling somewhat strongly. She revealed on Beck's radio show that she could be a "9/11 Truther," as in, someone who believes that 9/11 was an inside job. To her credit, she only said that "some very good questions have been raised in that regard," but for any serious contender for elected office even to suggest that the federal government either let or caused 3,000 people to die and for New Yorkers to be afflicted with mass PTSD is a sure sign that she's a loon.

Beck's classic summation on where he stands: "Rick [Perry, governor of TX], I think you and I could French Kiss right now."
