Glenn Beck cut a mean promo in front of a raucous San Antonio Tea Party crowd. He equally admonished Democrats and Republicans, former President George W Bush and President Barack Obama. Note how Glenn Beck calls out the media and a certain blustery pundit parody.
GLENN BECK: But since the media and Stephen Colbert are watching I'm going to speak very, very slowly (applause line). As I understand it, at least the way I see it here these have nothing to do with the Democratic Party other than the Democrats suck! (applause line) however no more than the Republicans suck (applause line). This has nothing to do with how much Barack Obama is spending. It's about how much Barack Obama and George W Bush and both Congresses have been spending for years (applause line). It has nothing to do with parties. It has everything to do with politicians from those parties lying to the people they're suppose to serve.
America is sick and tired of being sick and tired, of lies and corruption, of flushing our country down the toilet for their power. For the Donkey or the Elephant. I could give a flying crap and I have a feeling nobody here cares about the Donkey or the Elephant either.

STEPHEN COLBERT: But no one is leaping of the patriotism cliff more enthusiastically than America's life partner, Glenn Beck. That's why he's holding his tea party in an historic location...
--Glenn Beck Video is played--
I can now announce that we're going to have our program live from the only place in America where I think it really, reaaally makes sense - The Alamo.
STEPHEN COLBERT: Yes! That does really, reaaally makes sense. So few remember that the Boston Tea Party began when George Washington and his rag tag troop of Union soldiers holed up in the Alamo surrounded by Nazis. Luckily before Napoleon could bring in his terminator reinforcements...
For what it's worth I would like to throw my support for this grassroots effort by Fox News corporation. I certainly hope that this occupation of the Alamo goes just as well as the last one
