Not Only Is Fox's Glenn Beck a Bigot, He's Also a Lunatic

So not only is Glenn Beck a bigot, but he's also a raving lunatic.  On his Fox News show, Beck freaked out because President Obama didn't place his hand on a Bible while retaking the oath of office.  The best part was Beck pretended he "checked" and found that no President has been sworn in without a Bible.  That, of course, is FALSE.  As Think Progress points out, Teddy Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, and John Quincy Adams didn't use Bibles when they were sworn into office.

But hey, why should Beck let a little thing like the facts get in the way of marginalizing Obama at all costs?  Isn't that what all the redo complaints really boil down to -- the true Fox mission?  I mean, Fox simply gave the Bush administration a pass for eight painfully long years of blatant lies and illicitness.  Now, however, they're suddenly so concerned about strictly adhering to the law, criticizing Obama over something that was actually the fault of Chief Justice Roberts.
