Pick Your Favorite Dick Armey Quote
One of the things that we see as we look at Glenn Beck’s work that’s been fascinating to me, is we see a more true and accurate history of the United States, and we see it documented at levels of rigor that, in fact, one would expect out of Ph.D. dissertations — it is serious, scholarly work….[Liberal critics] don’t have to argue with Glenn Beck. They have to argue with his documentation and they can’t match that level of rigor.
This one is so bizarre that my drink came through my nose when I read it. I guess the anti-elite thing had gotten old so now Armey is arguing that Beck is more scholarly than the liberal elite? Glenn Beck is many things but a “serious scholar” is not one of them.

Armey bashed Barack Obama and Democrats even harder – the former economics professor said the president was “economically ignorant” and accusing Democrats of widespread voter fraud, saying it bad votes accounted for 3 percent of elections.
“I’m tired of people being Republican all their lives and then changing parties when they die,” quipped Armey, 70.
Assuming that there are any dead voters out there (which is a reach), I’m not sure where he comes up with such a precise figure. Maybe he had a “serious scholar” like Glenn Beck do some research into the subject.Click here for reuse options!
