The rampant egomania of Glenn Beck simply has no limits.
This ad is for his Restoring Honor rally tomorrow, in which he compares this event to the moon landing, the invention of flight, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King. There's simply no way to overstate the importance which Beck is placing on this rally which he himself has organised.
Although, it's very hard to discern what his rally is actually for. He says it's about God.
But I think Burns is much nearer to what this rally is actually about. He says it's about Glenn Beck "elevating himself and his delusions of grandeur".
Watching that advert for the event, it's hard to deny that Glenn Beck has delusions of grandeur.
Unsurprisingly, there are some who take great exception to Beck attempting to hijack the legacy of MLK.
