Mark Levin tells Glenn Beck "stop acting like a clown" and asks "what is your point?"

I've spoken previously about Mark Levin's disagreements with the rising Glenn Beck. Levin is once again voicing his opinion of Beck and again he pulls his punches somewhat as Beck is a popular figure amongst many on the right.

Mark Levin's monologue takes a few indirect shots at Beck but his point can be distilled in this line of questioning
Glenn Beck is no Ronald Reagan (but Rand Paul is a lot like his father)
MARK LEVIN: If we are to attack with a broad brush, in generalised terms an entire political party that is itself is in the midst of transformation. What is the point?

If you're on the one hand going to encourage people to rise up, speak out, to get involved and in the next breath discourage them from getting involved in politics and not endorsing Conservatives over liberal establishment Republicans. What is your point

To flirt for month after month with third parties and third party ideology and then when called on to say you've never done it when the record is overwhelming. What is your point?

and let me say this to promote Ron Paul over and over and over again. One of the most irresponsible politicians, who blames America for her enemies and at least when it comes to foreign policy... you're promoting a radical agenda that has nothing to do with conservatism

Mark Levin goes on to speak to Politico cautioning Beck
Mark Levin to Glenn Beck: 'Stop acting like a clown'
“The mainstream media is not your friend. It will promote you for the purpose of destroying you,” he said, seemingly alluding to the somewhat favorable coverage of Beck’s speech. “Be careful playing footsie with the mainstream media.”

“Decide what you are,” Levin added, “A circus clown, self-identified, or a thoughtful and wise person. It’s hard to be both.”
