(Newser) – Glenn Beck’s appendix accomplished today what the nasty wishes of liberals everywhere couldn’t: It took him off the air. Beck excused himself early from his national radio show; an exec at his production company confirmed the operation. “Before going under Glenn asked the doctor to draw out the surgery procedure on a blackboard,” Christopher Balfe joked to NTS MediaOnline.
