The Beck Palin road show is continuing tomorrow in Alaska. The date was the best one they could find. After all, they didn't want to conflict with the Alaska State Fair. What's that? Tomorrow just happens to be 9/11? Well, imagine that.
The promoter of the event suggested the (apparently randomly) selected date was "a coincidence." The Anchorage Daily News said "Cox originally was eyeing Sept. 4, but did not want to compete with the Alaska State Fair, and moved the date to a week later, which worked out better for Beck as well."
Yeah, I bet it did work out better for Beck. Oh, and the media attention on this event (with tickets starting at upwards of $65) led Beck to finally say that he would donate his speaking fee. Funny that that had not been mentioned at all before. What better way to remember 9/11? According to Sarah Palin, there is no better way. "I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will 'never forget.'" and pay stupid amounts of money to honor them. The funny thing is, this was never billed as a fundraiser, ever.
Oh, back to the coincidence thing. Where else have we heard that? Wait, that's right! It was a "coincidence" that Beck's Washington rally was on the anniversary of MLK's rally. Total coincidence. Or as Beck refers to it "divine providence."
Given his track record, I think we can expect Beck to be in Hawaii in early December, right?
Oh, and just to give this post a little fun, I give you the Glenn Beck Conspiracy Theory Generator. Try it. You'll like it.
