Glenn Beck Gives Tutorial on How to Engage in Civil Dialogue, Says You Can't Make Wild, Baseless Accusations

On his radio show today Glenn Beck expressed concern about the declining quality of our public discourse. Apparently, the national dialogue is being polluted by people who say things without basing their assertions on solid evidence. Really? Like who? According to Beck, the main culprits are those who point to race as a motivating factor in some of the crazy attacks (you lie!) against Obama.

Said Beck, without any shred of irony that I could suss out,

"I would say that the false cries of racism on Joe Wilson ... when there's absolutely nothing to back it up... Just back it up! Just back it up! You wanna say "Hey, I think this guy's a racist ... let's listen to the explanation. What is your evidence that this guy's a racist....what is your evidence."
