Glenn Beck Pokes Fun at the Blind, 2006
Looks like karma is hitting insensitive clod Glenn Beck right between the eyes.
Seems he's got "macular dysfunction," a condition he claims might cause blindness.
It's heartless to celebrate a disabling disease, so I will refrain from being too upbeat about this news, but I will say I hope he will have a splendid retirement from Fox News if and when his eyes fail him.
Beneath his hapless, quasi-lovable on-camera shtick lies a man filled with hatred and intolerance. He riles up ignorant people by preying on their biggest fears and insecurities.
It will be a better world if Beck has to give up his show for whatever reason.
When he made the announcement that he may be going blind, of course he started crying. Then he said how much he loved to read, and that he was "too darn lazy to learn Braille."
