So ignore him

So ignore Glenn Beck and recruit his supporters. The main positive thing Glenn does is that he encourages people to look outside the political box. This is a very hard thing to do, and just breaking them out of their status quo thinking to some small degree is a monumental accomplishment. If we actually engage these people and act as guides on their trip down the rabbit hole then does it really matter who got them to crack their eyes open? I say we have more to gain by being friendly with his supporters and building on common beliefs than lamenting how horrible Glenn Beck is (when he is far closer to a libertarian than most other media personalities).
