Nothing to see here, folks. No such thing as radical Islam. Just keep on moving.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a fan of Glenn Beck. Yeah, he's kinda crazy and a little fat. But uses a strategy similar to the military's formula for Intelligence Preparation of the Battlespace (IPB) when analyzing his target material. Part of that strategy includes providing a least likely scenario, a most likely scenario, and a most dangerous scenario. Beck, unlike just about everyone else, isn't afraid to give us his "black swan" (and he is pretty clear when he's speaking about worst case scenarios vs. most likely scenarios). One of those black swans that Beck identified last year was Obama's regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein. When Glenn stated that Sunstein intended to regulate the internet, Beck was immediately vilified as a fear-monger by the liberal media, including our beloved Media Matters. So was he right? You make the call.
