Joe Lieberman Recommended Glenn Beck To Yale ???
I know ya have to be careful trusting Wikipedia, but...

<snip>

Beck was admitted to a special program for non-traditional students at Yale University while he was working for a New Haven-area radio station, having received at least one of his recommendations from Senator Joe Lieberman. During this time Beck took a single theology class, dropping out around the time of his divorce.

Thanks again, Joe.

1. Didn't seem to help him
Edited on Mon Sep-07-09 02:32 AM by Canuckistanian
He dropped out anyways.

And what is it with New Canaan, Ct.? That where Ann Coulter is from.

Also, Beck got special permission to put up a 6' wall around his property, citing "security concerns" about "angry audiences"

:freak:

8. Cheney was worse...
and I don't think that Gore would have been his VP's puppet, the way that Bush was.

12. Not just Wiki...
Exact words are on Raw Story, Political Wrinkles and Huffpo

http://rawstory.com/08/news/2009/05/20/whoopi-calls-glenn-beck-lying-sack-of-dog-mess/

http://www.politicalwrinkles.com/media/8682-beck-ratings-giant-2.html

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/news/glenn-beck?show_comment_id=30409281

Wiki is usally cut and paste content.

"Special program" and "non-traditional student" smacks of Exceptional Education connotations.

15. Oh dear FSM, I think I was in that program
the Special Students Program. I took a course in Political Philosophy while attending the University of New Haven up the road (in West Haven :-) ).

Of course, I ended up transferring to Yale and receiving a cum laude degree, while Beckkk dropped out. :P
