Glenn Beck Responds To Weiner’s Goldline Charges, Launches Weinerfacts.com

Fight fire with….wieners? Glenn Beck dropped what has felt like a days-long rant against century-old politicians and reverted to fighting form tonight to push back against accusations from New York Rep. Anthony Weiner that Beck and Goldline, which sponsors his show, were running a racket and “ripping off customers.”

In response to Weiner’s accusations — or really as part of his response — which have received wide-ish play in the media, Beck has launched (it’s run by his staffers) WeinerFacts.com: “world wide weiner web.” The site is devoted to “facts” about Rep. Weiner interspersed with pictures of wieners. Yes. Glenn Beck has gone opposition 2.0 (literally! He showed off the new site on his iPad). One can only look forward to the day his chalkboard gets its own Twitter account.

Fear not, however, Beck did not let Weinerfacts.com do all his trash talking for him. Chalkboard and funny voices at the ready, Beck also demonstrated why Weiner’s connections to President Obama and Media Matters (and inevitably Van Jones) may be evidence he is the new…Joe McCarthy: “How afraid they really must be.” Or, you know, looking for for the sort of attention that results in campaign donations down the line.
