Glenn Beck was created by ratings.

And he has a Plan

Via  Glenn Beck reveals the Plan

I am developing a 100 year plan. I know that the bipartisan corruption in Washington that has brought us to this brink and it will not be defeated easily. It will require unconventional thinking and a radical plan to restore our nation to the maximum freedoms we were supposed to have been protecting, using only the battlefield of ideas.

- All of the above will culminate in The Plan, a book that will provide specific policies, principles and, most importantly, action steps that each of us can take to play a role in this Refounding.

First reaction:  it is amusing to me that a fellow who is so concerned with communists (who were well known for their ineffective 5-year plans) is going to proffer a 100 year plan.

Second:  a good way to sell books,  I guess:  promise a plan, but one can only get the plan if one buys the book.  Heck, if Glenn really cared about the country wouldn’t he just offer the plan for free on his web site?
