Glenn Beck hates the World Cup | Media Matters for America: "It doesn't matter how you sell it to us. It doesn't matter how many celebrities you get. It doesn't matter how many bars open early. It doesn't matter how many beer commercials they run. We don't want the World Cup. We don't like the World Cup. We don't like soccer. We want nothing to do with it. You can package it any way -- you can spend all kinds of money. You can force it on our television sets. We will not enjoy the World Cup."
Okay, I was probably going to watch the US play England, even if Beck hadn't gone off on this rant, which is some truly over the top dickitude, even for Beck. After all, I love my country, and love to see it succeed, especially in things we're not normally known for being good at.
But the fact that the World Cup induces this degree of apoplexy in the man who is to asshats as the Grand Canyon is to holes in the ground is just icing on the cake.
USA! USA! USA!
