Glenn Beck (file)
Monday's Rewrite taking on Glenn Beck and his deplorable remarks toward women and Planned Parenthood seem to have struck a nerve with a lot of people. The comments here on the blog and Facebook, along with your tweets have spoken loud and clear. There's typical right-wing radio rhetoric... and then there's this.
A woman close to me told me when she heard what Beck had said in response to the email Lawrence received that she was "sickened." She went on to say, "It was so hateful towards that poor woman, all women, and the truth. It just made me so angry."
That's beyond understandable.
Our MSNBC colleague, Martin Bashir, also seemed to have a rather visceral reaction to what Beck said. But rather than respond in kind, he relied on his intellect when saying his piece, today. He gave a nice tip of the hat to the work we do here at The Last Word HQ, and I wanted to make sure to respond in kind. Here's the must-see segment from his show this afternoon.
