Glenn Beck tooting that racial dog-whistle and being his usual contemptible self:

“Let me bring out the list of dirtbag cities I’m going to talk about again…


Newark, Democrat since 1928. Now, that’s quite a streak, Newark. I knew I like you for a reason.

Current mayor, Corey Booker [sic], prides himself on progressive programs. He’s working like this with the Center for American Progress on green jobs, because that’s what I think of when I think of Newark, New Jersey. Four years in office and Newark still ranks the 10th most poverty-stricken city in America.

You got it going on. Word to your mommy.”

[The Glenn Beck Program, Fox News Channel, August 5, 2010]

Sigh. Onward we go…

Update: On a related note, Joan Walsh has an excellent post up about Glenn Beck’s “It’s like the Planet of the Apes” comment that was made during the same show as the “your mommy” remark. It’s worth a read.
