I have read Beck and I have read Levin. In the solitude of the study they both make compelling points for the conservative cause. I have listened to Beck and I have listened to Levin. Early on they both caught my attention, and they both were as compelling in audio as in print.
But something happened. Beck, perhaps due to his shooting star, or perhaps because of his belief in his own star personality became the showman. Now don't get me wrong, I have nothing against showmanship. It can be very effective in the proper setting, and in the proper venue.
However, when presenting the case for a political cause, movement, or philosophy , it seams a lot more effective, at least to this interested party to show and maintain sincerity. It simply lends more credibility to the argument. Playing the part of the showman (or clown) just... well, I suppose give the feeling of being at a show... or circus.
View here Mark Levin's audio on Beck's antics of late.
On this I must agree with Levin. What do you think?
