Glenn Beck Calls Himself a 'Rodeo Clown' [Celebrity Science]


Deep down, past the creepy post-apocalyptic conservative rhetoric like "we surround them" and "you are not alone," who is Glenn Beck? "A rodeo clown," he told the New York Times. Or maybe worse.

“I’m a rodeo clown,” he said in an interview, adding with a coy smile, “It takes great skill.

That sort of self deprecation might protect Beck against the relentless teasing of his Fox News Channel colleagues , who after all must envy the speed with which Beck came out of nowhere (aka CNN Headline News) to top all cable news hosts aside from Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity in viewership.

But disaffected fight-winger David "Axis of Evil" Frum is as worried as ever about Beck, for the sake of conservatism:

...Frum said Mr. Beck’s success “is a product of the collapse of conservatism as an organized political force, and the rise of conservatism as an alienated cultural sensibility.”

“It’s a show for people who feel they belong to an embattled minority that is disenfranchised and cut off,” he said.

As opposed to the enfranchised, cash-drenched bankers and the pro-war necons who were key Republican constituents during Frum's glory days. They're all as bitter and loserish as any libtard Dem now, Frum seems to be saying, leaving the likes of Beck and Sarah Palin to lead the dead-ender, social conservative remnants of the base in an unhinged charge against big government.

And all the would-be conservative pundits not down with that are left to just blog or write for the Daily Beast or whatever and seethe at Fox News, like a bitter loser libtard Dem c. 2004.

Welcome to 2009.

Over A Year After Android Launch, ShopSavvy Finally Comes To The iPhone

ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications. It launched in October of last year after winning one of the initial Android Developer Challenge top prizes (when it was still known as GoCart). But despite the success it has seen on Android, one question remained: When would it be available for the iPhone. Today, it finally is. Developed by the guys at Big In Japan , ShopSavvy is an app that allows you to use your device as a portable barcode scanner. You point your phone's camera at any barcode and it will read it, do a product look up, and give you information about the product, as well as where you can find it online or at nearby stores and for how much. Obviously, something like this is a window shopper's dream. ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications.

Lindsay Lohan Breakup Confirmed by Lohan, Locksmith, Police [Gossip Roundup]

Farewell, last season's Suri Cruise fashions. Goodbye, Amy Winehouse's bathing suit. Adieu, humanoid version of Lauren Conrad. And so long, LiLo and SamRon's fairytale romance. Lindsay Lohan confirmed her split with Samantha Ronson and insisted the decision was part of a very healthy and mature effort to " focus on myself ." Upon hearing this, Ronson changed her locks and discussed a restraining order with police, so confident was she in Lohan's ability to turn productively inward. Lohan promptly had a run-in with the police . Who would have imagined such a messy breakup for this model relationship? Courtney Love's lawyer, on her client's drug-fueled plunge into broke-ness: ""Courtney noticed the money was gone when there wasn't any left." Deadpan gallows humor: the only possible response to having Courtney Love as a client. (Besides asking for a hefty retainer.) [ P6 ] Before Lauren Conrad's contract expired in March, MTV
