Read the whole thing. (It seems that the creeps at Media Matters are delving into the death of Glenn Beck's mother in 1979. They're hoping that he lied about it. This will, er, increase their credibility? Discredit his arguments? Mark has links.)
What does the frenzy unleashed on Sarah Palin last fall tell us? What does Newsweek's "Mad Man" cover on Glenn Beck mean? Why have "civility" drones like Joe Klein so eagerly adopted Anderson Cooper's scrotal "teabagging" slur and characterized as "racists" and "terrorists" what are (certainly by comparison with the anti-G20 crowd) the best behaved and tidiest street agitators in modern history?
They're telling you who they really fear. Whom the media gods would destroy they first make into "mad men." Liz Cheney should be due for the treatment any day now.
Several hours before Steyn wrote his Corner post, HuffPo blogger Chris Kelly, commenting on a NYT article about Liz Cheney, called her out for adapting a joke and repeating it in various speeches. This, along with a scatological reference to Dick Cheney and some ridicule of the recent Smart Girl Politics summit, is what passed for content in his post.
But hey, the man writes for the brilliant Bill Maher, so he can claim the intellectual and moral high ground.

On the bright side, Liz Cheney appears to be tough, and she surely knows how dirty this can get.
