Right wing malcontent and FOX News host Glenn Beck takes a moment from organizing townhall disruptions to making on-air jokes about killing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Beck ran a skit where a staffer appeared with a Pelosi cut-out face—how inventive, right?—and offered "Speaker Pelosi" a glass of wine and laughed that he "put poison in your glass."
In related news, Beck's on-air thuggery and race-baiting is costing him advertisers. Think Progress reports NexisLexis-owned Lawyers.com, Procter & Gamble and Progressive Insurance are dropping Beck after he called President Obama a "racist" with "a deep-seated hatred for white people" on "Fox & Friends" last week. The action was spurred by over 45,000 ColorofChange.org members who called on Beck's advertisers.
WHEN YOU JUMP, watch conservative Mormon commentator Glenn Beck "joke" about poisoning Speaker Pelosi, who is second-in-line to the presidency. Keep it classy, Glenn. Oh and thanks for letting us know that jokes about assassinating politicians are perfectly acceptable, but same-sex marriage and universal health care are not.
