Glenn Beck: Uniter, not divider

Right-wing talking head Glenn Beck had several dinners recently with Roger Ailes, the president of Fox News.

At these dinners, says Beck, he and Ailes discussed how "there's got to be a better way to do what we do and not divide people."

Beck's claim to fame includes having called Hillary Clinton a "stereotypical bitch" and the "Antichrist," President Jimmy Carter a "waste of skin," Mexican immigrants "dirt bags" and "lawbreakers," Katrina victims "scumbags," and Cindy Sheehan a "prostitute," and having demanded of Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim elected to Congress, "What I feel like saying is, 'Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies.'"

As a result of his meetings with Ailes, Beck will be moving from CNN to Fox News next February, much to the relief of Anderson Cooper, who will no longer have to tell his mother he plays piano in a whorehouse.
