I have always had mixed feelings about Rand also, but ...

I think calling him a "f...ing bigot" is really a bit much. You don't know him personally, and you are judging him. What we do know about Rand, is that he plays politics, and for that reason alone, you should know that whatever comes out of his mouth is not necessarily an accurate reflection of what he personally believes. In his interview with Glenn Beck, really, there is no doubt the reason he was saying this was to tell an audience what Rand believes that audience wanted to hear. Then he turned around later and stated that he felt what the Supreme Court did was appropriate.

You might be disappointed with the way that Rand plays politics, but you also have to balance that out with many good things that Rand has stood up for. Personally, Rand does not quite meet my level of standards, but I have to admit that he is better than the overwhelming majority of politicians, and I really think that he does not deserve to have his character bashed over something like the Glenn Beck interview. Rand is nothing like a Rick Santorum or a Romney.
