Beck Compares Democrats To Rapist Roman Polanski

Views

You may have thought that conservatives had mastered the art of attacking Democratic health care reform proposals. But conservative Fox News host Glenn Beck proved last night that there’s always more to learn, comparing the Obama initiative to child rapist Roman Polanski.

“We’re the young girl saying, ‘No no! Help me!’ and the government is Roman Polanski. In the end I think we’re all going to be cowering in France.”

Coincidentally, people “cowering” in France enjoy the best health care system in the world.
