Jon Stewart, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh unite against Glenn Beck's CPAC speech

I've spoken previously of Beck's ascendancy and how it has made him Public Enemy #1 for those on the left and the right.

Mediate has a comprehensive round up of the pundit pushback of Glenn Beck's CPAC keynote speech. Videos and response summaries from Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Jon Stewart are all featured:
Strange Bedfellows: Rush Limbaugh, Jon Stewart Slam Glenn Beck’s CPAC Speech
Wow. So, Glenn Beck’s CPAC keynote speech on Friday was apparently so powerful it united Jon Stewart, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin... against him. I’m not sure what that says about Beck except that he really has managed to carve out a place all his own in the media landscape these last few months and he maybe is making some people nervous. Well not Jon Stewart per se (‘gold mine’ might be a better description), but it’s certainly interesting to hear Rush Limbaugh (ever so gently) push back at Beck. Sign of things to come? Is Beck on his way to becoming the Frankenstein of the right? The tone of both Levin and Limbaugh suggest they were less than thrilled at Beck’s conservative bashing/reality check
