Glenn Beck Compares Rick Santorum to Winston Churchill

Remember, CNN pays this guy lots of money.

This morning on NPR, host Steve Inskeep asked right-wing pundit Glenn Beck who the "rising star" is in the conservative movement. Beck's response? Defeated senator Rick Santorum. "I think the guy is a Winston Churchill in many ways," said Beck.
"You know, there's really only one guy that I've talked to that I really really like. I think the guy is a Winston Churchill in many ways. He blew his Senate campaign because he spoke the truth. His advisers kept saying, 'Don't say this, don't say this, this is going to hurt you.'
"And that's Rick Santorum out of Pennsylvania. I think this guy really has it. I think he really understands the world we live in right now."
So, when Beck isn't calling Democrats communists on the air, or suggesting wildfire victims "hate America," or agreeing with al Qaeda about America's shortcomings, or defending the John Birch Society, Glenn Beck is arguing that Rick "Man on Dog" Santorum reminds him of Winston Churchill.

I'm curious, do you suppose CNN ever feels a twinge of embarrassment signing this guy's very large checks?

For what it's worth, Amanda at TP notes that Santorum probably approves of the historical comparison.
