Anyways, O'Reilly and Beck were an absolute hoot. Everyone was laughing so hard. First Beck came up on stage alone, then O'Reilly and they finished together, asking questions of one another. I won't spoil the whole thing, because I really recommend that you see if for yourself. Plus, tickets are cheaper for the the encore this Tuesday. It'll temporarily relief the anger you feel from BO's campai-- I mean, SOTU speech last week.
I must say I absolutely adore Glenn Beck. Oh, I think he's a little nuts and has a horrible case of A.D.D., but that's part of his charm. He's fun and entertaining to watch. (Not to mention he balances out Mr. Serious O'Reilly) He really knows how to work a crowd.
Like I said, I won't go into everything they said, as I don't wish to ruin it, but some of the funnier moments:
Beck said he was so distracted during Obama's SOTU speech and didn't know which distracted him more - at the things the President said ("Wait, did he REALLY just say that?" Beck said) or "Ren and Stimpy sitting behind him". Said Biden was doing some sort of pantomime act and Pelosi looked like he would just before getting hit by a truck... only with a smile.
Beck continues to make fun of Pelosi, even when it's both him and O'Reilly on the stage.
O'Reilly finally says, "C'mon now, quit making fun of her. What would you do if she called up and said you were really hurting her feelings? Would you stop?".
Beck pauses, looks at O'Reilly like he has lost his mind, laughs and matter-of-factly says "No".
So O'Reilly says, "I know she's a little strange, but come on..."
Beck laughs again and says "Wait, wait, wait. Mr Objective is even saying she's a little strange? Wow..."
Great show - what a treat. I'm really glad I went, even though I felt a little in the minority (I was one of the youngest people there. Ah well...).
I hope they extend their tour and maybe stop by Atlanta. I'd love to see those two in person.

Good for Rush. Glad to have him as a voice for conservatives. He has said everything I'd like to say to the President. I get tempted to write him a letter after his speeches, especially those in which he puts down people that don't agree with him or blames Bush (and come to think of it, I think that includes ALL of his speeches...haha)
I've never seen a president put down his own people as much as this one has. It's digusting and arrogant (oops, does that make me racist now?). I can literally feel my blood pressure rising, just at the mere sound of his voice. I've got an involuntary eye tick, whenever he utters the words "this mess I've inherited" or something like it. I've rolled my eyes so much at all of the lies he tells, that I'm afraid of what my mother used to tell me - that they really will get stuck that way.
But for now, I will take a break from my frustrations and will hopefully see O'Reilly and Beck's Bold, Fresh Tour tonight on the big screen. I'm looking forward to it. If you aren't able to catch them in person or catch them at a movie theater tonight, they are having an encore presentation Tuesday, February 2nd. It's playing at select locations, so check for locations and times in your area.

Too bad Obama's sore about it...but, hey, that's what happens when you hit your 1st anniversary - it means the Honeymoon ended awhile ago! I wouldn't be pleased either if it meant the end of the thing (healthcare) that I've staked my whole Presidency on. Kind of confused why he's surprised though... Well, then again, this was the same guy who was surprised by the Tea Party people protesting taxes and the increasing size of government.
Other liberals seem to be sore about it as well. Poor Barney Frank can't play with the big boys, so it's time to change the rules of the filibuster. Odd how he didn't seem to have a problem when the liberals had their 60 member supermajority...
John Kerry had his feathers ruffled over "bullying and threats" and "intimidation tactics". Does anyone really listen to this guy anymore?
Even Keith Olbermann had words of love for Scott Brown. Correct me if I'm wrong, Mr Olbermann, but isn't that "hate speech"? You'd be among the first to call for a conservative talk show host to step down if they had said the exact same thing about about a liberal candidate.
The liberal facebookers were also a bit steemed:
"Last night it was reported that the GOP has a good shot at getting the seat up in Mass. tonight and breaking the fillabuster(sp). Related, the average stock for the healthcare companies shot up today. Makes you realize who REALLY wins..."
Those who REALLY won due to Scott Brown's senate race:
People who work hard to pay for things important to them, like health care.
People who don't think they need health care and don't want to be forced to buy it.
People who don't think health care is a "right".
People who deserve more actual transparency in government.
People who don't want lifelong governmental control forced down their throats.
I hope this is a wake-up call for those in Washington running again in 2010. This race was supposed to be a shoe-in for the Democrat. Don't know about you, but I can't wait for 2010 if this is a sign of what is coming next.
