     The Montgomery-based Southern Poverty Law Center is quoted by NY Times columnist Bob Herbert today regarding the great rally in D.C. by "talk" host Glen Beck:

     "The Southern Poverty Law Center tells us that in a twist on the civil rights movement, Beck said on the air that he 'wouldn’t be surprised if in our lifetime dogs and fire hoses are released or opened on us. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few of us get a billy club to the head. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of us go to jail — just like Martin Luther King did — on trumped-up charges. Tough times are coming.'

     He makes you want to take a shower."

     What does Beck really believe? Hard to say. Between the tears and the jeers, he seems to be mostly rallying people to the cause of Glen Beck. Comparing himself to Dr. King? Really? Does anyone truly buy that?
