This week, Glenn Beck boasted about his new car – a “death-proof” Mercedes.  It immediately made me think of the time a few years ago when Glenn Beck asked all of his fans to send him money, so he could buy a new car.

Now, keep in mind, this is from the same guy that apparently gets a real laugh out of mocking homeless people who ask him for money.  In June 2003, Glenn Beck launched a “new car fund,” which he asked his fans to fill for him.  Mind you, this is real – not a joke. From his website:

“Now is your chance to real [sic] make a difference in someone’s life” … by giving money to someone with more money than you, so he can buy a new car.
