Raw Story and ThinkProgress both relate news today that strikes me as just a little obvious. But, OK: Fox News infotainer Glenn Beck premiered his new live show, "The Christmas Sweater", based on the book, "The Christmas Sweater" last night, and in major American cities where liberals tend to dwell, very few tickets were sold: 17 in Boston, 17 in New York City and 30 in Washington, DC. That said, "sales were better in more conservative areas." In other news, a period of darkness is expected to occur tonight, upon the setting of the sun.
But, OK. yes: these same cities are packed with millions of people, and surely there are more than 20 who are Glenn Beck devotees. That's where the old adage of "why buy the cow when I can get it for free, on Fox News Channel, every day?" kicks in. I don't know what else there is to say about it, other than that.
Oh, all right, there's this:
Despite purporting to be a champion of the "little guy," Beck set tickets prices at $20 -- more than double the average ticket price.
So, BREAKING: America is in the midst of a recession, and a massive unemployment crisis.
