I read about Glenn Beck soliciting money for the Chamber of Commerce a few days ago, but I didn’t realize he’d put it quite this way (h/t reader n):
“Put your money where your mouth is. If you have a dollar, please go to . . . the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and donate today.” Chamber members, he said, “are our parents. They’re our grandparents. They are us.”
And they work hard and should keep as much of their money as possible. But enough about that.
As is always the case with whatever Beck is saying, no less a person than David Brooks (h/t whoever mentioned this phrase in the comments) was saying the same thing in totebaggerese a few days ago:
Declaring war on the Chamber of Commerce may be a good idea for somebody hosting a show on MSNBC, but there are chambers in towns across America.
Real Murkins love their Chamber of Commerce. My Chamber of Commerce supports my town! They put together a nice brochure for visitors and erected a stone dial on the village green with “Only count the sunny hours” engraved in it. I ran into the head of my local chamber at the Applebee’s salad bar and he said he was worried about being demonized by Obama. He may stop hiring because his taxes are so high.
It’s time for Bobo to cut the fucking chase and tell us why Burke and Hume want us to stock up on gold, canned food, water, and ammo.
