Any sentient human being who knows of Glenn Beck can pretty much agree he's a clown. Watch this if you have any doubts. (The best part: After this jaw-dropping bit of utter stupidity, Gov. Rick Perry apparently told Beck he was proud to be on the show.)

Unfortunately, we in Houston will get the chance to judge for ourselves up close -- we are one of six lucky "conservative" cities where Beck will tour his comedy show.
The comedy show is different than what he puts out on the radio or on Fox, you might be surprised to learn, since that stuff is pretty funny. As long as you overlook how pathetic it is.
