Glenn Beck Shoots Rifle To Relieve Stress Of McDaniel Loss
Because it’s a really good idea to teach children that the way to deal with your candidate losing, or any other kind of stress, Glenn Beck modeled exemplary behavior by running to his window and shooting a rifle over the loss of Chris McDaniel to Thad Cochran. Not only is this good for ratings, but it shows a wonderful way to handle your emotions: grab a gun and shoot it at something. And, because you’re Glenn Beck, the media, including this site, will write about it and hail you as a wonderful huma being.
Thad Cochran narrowly defeated Tea Party-backed challenger Chris McDaniel in Mississippi’s GOP runoff Tuesday, and many media outlets are suggesting Cochran’s heavy courtship of black Democrats was key to his success.
The issue infuriated Glenn Beck, who said on his radio program that Cochran’s actions are proof that “establishment” Republicans are “much more comfortable with having Democrats come out and vote, than having their base come out and vote.”
Beck grew so angry at one point during his broadcast — which he is doing from his ranch this week — that he briefly stepped away from the microphone to shoot his rifle.
