In perhaps the first non-sarcastic use of the following question in the history of Balloon Juice, I ask you: What could possibly go wrong?
Glenn Beck says he may drop his membership in the National Rifle Association amid (baseless) fears that the organization has been infiltrated by radical Islamists — a conspiracy theory that centers on anti-tax activist and NRA board member Grover Norquist, who is currently seeking re-election to the board.[snip]
“I mean, I just — I am that concerned that he is a very bad influence and a very bad man, that if this is who the NRA decides to put on their board of directors, I don’t think I can be associated with them,” Beck continued.
Also, this happened on Friday:
Glenn Beck claimed on his radio show today that he spoke to National Rifle Association executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre and was told that the NRA is “opening up an ethics investigation” to determine “once and for all” if Grover Norquist is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood. Beck also definitively said he would leave the NRA if Norquist is reelected to the NRA’s board of directors in April.
Norquist is a shadowy, bearded figure who is trying to destroy America, but then again, so is Beck. They should settle this thing with a duel.
