On his radio show yesterday, Glenn Beck launched a lengthy diatribe against CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, calling him “the dumbest man ever on television.” Beck played a clip of Sanchez’s infamous volcano flub, where the CNN anchor joked that he didn’t understand how volcanoes could erupt in cold places like Iceland. Beck played a few other on-air errors from Sanchez over the years, and said, “I honestly don’t know how the man ties his own shoes.”
While Sanchez may be rusty when it comes to geology, Beck is hardly one to criticize the intelligence of fellow television personalities. Here are a few of Beck’s more intellectually challenged moments:
— Beck reveals that President Obama is an “oligarh.”
— Beck also misspells “heroes” and “villains” live on-air.
— Beck plays Connect Four against himself, and cheats.
— Beck displayed a graphic demonstrating that Silas from “The Da Vinci Code” is a member of ACORN.
Any discussion of “the dumbest man on television” should include “rodeo clowns” with a TV show.
