(Newser) – So a few advertisers abandoned Glenn Beck’s show after his last bout of verbal diarrhea—so what? That didn’t stop him from “joking” that he wanted to poison Nancy Pelosi last night on his show, during a skit about hanging out at her “liberal, elitist wine vineyard,” writes the Cajun Boy for Gawker. Now the "endlessly frustrating" Pelosi is “almost universally disliked,” but Beck’s joke to his "audience of angry simpletons" is still “mildly infuriating.”

“Sometimes you watch Beck and you just can't believe what you're seeing and hearing,” he continues, “like you're living in the middle of a bad dream directed by Mike Judge, causing you to just drop your head, take a deep breath in order to summon some semblance of serenity, and think hard about moving to an island or joining the Peace Corps, anything to distance yourself far, far away from all of the idiot noise.”
