I made it back about an hour ago from the taping of the Glenn Beck Show. So as not to compromise the integrity of the show, I will not say too much now. You'll have to tune in tomorrow night, 5-6 p.m. EST to watch it. I will simply make a few comments.
First, it was good to see Glenn Beck, but he is far from 100%. In fact, he did something he never does. He remained seated. He apologized ahead of time but said that he was too weak to do otherwise. Keep in mind he just returned from surgery.
Suffice it to say I was glad to have the opportunity to be there, but it was far from what I expected. We were a rather raucous audience and Glenn reprimanded us nicely at one point. We were still yapping (arguing?) when we went to commercial, but that was the only time some were able to talk--and even then it was nearly impossible.
So to quote Maria from My Voice on the Wings of Change, whom I met tonight:
I did not talk once. Not a sound or a peep.
(Read her quick comments about tonight here).
Same here. Hey, I tried to speak--more than once, more than twice--but it was impossible. So when you tune in tomorrow, expect to see me in the audience, but don't expect to hear me speak, or Maria, or Clifton from Another Black Conservative.
I could say more, but that's enough for now. I will speak my mind more after the show airs, and I don't think you'll want to miss my interpretation of how things went.
And you certainly don't want to miss my defending Sarah Palin story. Yep, encountered some Palin-bashing--and, if you know me, you know I addressed it!
It'll be interesting to see how the show gets prettied up for airing.
I will speak more of my mind soon. For now, I will close by saying it was not at all what I expected, and I was frustrated.
