While joking around on his radio show Wednesday, Fox News personality Glenn Beck addressed the idea that he and Sarah Palin should run for president together in 2012.

Beck apparently likes the idea of a Beck-Palin ticket, but a Palin-Beck ticket? Not so much.

"I was just thinking, what, I'm going to take a back seat to a chick?" Beck quipped, to laughter from the studio. "Go shoot a bear, make some stew, I'm hungry in here."

In an interview with Newsmax last week, Palin "wouldn't rule out" running with the controversial talk show host in 2012.

"So while she's considering it ... I just want her to know, I'm ruling it out. A Palin-Beck ticket, I'm absolutely ruling it out," Beck said. "I’m just saying, Beck-Palin, I’ll consider. But Palin-Beck -- can you imagine what an administration with the two of us would be like? She'd be yapping or something, I'd say, 'I'm sorry, why am I hearing your voice? I'm not in the kitchen.' I mean, you'd have to live up to the evil conservative stereotypes, you'd have no choice but to do so."

"A woman’s appropriate place on a presidential ticket, according to Beck, is in the number two spot," writes Alex Seitz-Wald at ThinkProgress. "Otherwise, she should just 'yap' away in a kitchen somewhere. Apparently, being a vice presidential running mate behind a woman is a serious challenge to Beck’s manhood."

"Palin has a hair-trigger reaction to sexist slights ... so I would predict a wingnut feud," writes Azaria Jagger at Gawker. "But in this case, Lady Alaska's martyr complex is going to conflict with her effusive love of right-wing media. Also, Beck's producers will likely pressure him to make nice. She's way too valuable to them."

But, hey, it's all a joke, right?

"Yeah, Glenn, it's a 'joke.' We get it," writes bluegal at the Crooks and Liars blog. "We get that you're a former shock jock, that you don't actually believe a single word you say, and that you will say anything for money. We get that the vice-presidency is even further out of your league than it is for Palin, and that's saying a lot.

"We also get that you're an infantile jerk."

Admittedly, I laughed. But I'll have to agree with the majority of this thread, I really don't understand how anyone could possibly take him seriously.

I should hire him to make discriminatory comments about me, be famous for it, and get laid. Lobbying for pussy? Gentlemen, to the board...

No, liberals are classist reactionaries. The association of those conservative anti-workerists with the left is a result of how unbelievably screwed up the american political spectrum is thanks to years of McCarthyite propaganda.

I have a fair understanding of the political hypocrisies inherent in the American political structure. (in fairness, you're probably far better versed than I am).

I just used the term "liberal" because it's a common term, that right-wing pundits throw about.

Hehe, cool.

I've always found it ironic that american conservatives tar anyone even moderately lefter than them as "liberal" seeing as how small government free market policies have their roots in classical liberalism.

And when they call anyone who's progressive on social issues a leftist. O'Reilly, Hannity, Beck, Rush, Savage, and all those other people need to be introduced to the Political Compass.

Compasses are a marxist conspiracy. There's no reason to go anywhere, politically or geographically, when everything is already perfect.

No they need to be introduced to basic socialist theories on the origin of social issues and discrimination and made to realise that "Progressives" are really their allies in terms of maintaining the current cultural hegemony.

I'm not a Glenn Beck fan, but this is one of the dumbest articles I've seen. Completely twists what he was saying, and most of it is comprised of quotes from commentators.


1. Twisting what people say is all Glenn Beck ever does.

2. How does it twist any of his words?

3. What is wrong with an article quoting someone and then other peoples reaction to it?

He's right. Women do not have the capability to successfully lead a nation; sure, there are exceptions, but Palin certainly isn't one of them. She's as dumb as a woman comes.
