Glenn Beck seems bound and determined to get the public's attention again. This time he threw an anti-Obama inauguration party in the capital of Wingnutistan, Dallas:
The event swiftly trended on Twitter – #misfitsball – with supporters expressing gratitude for a chance to tune out Obama's triumph. "This ball gives me hope that their are still sane people left in the world," tweeted @ShogunOfTruth.
The menu comprised offerings from Chick-fil-A, a fast-food chain which embroiled in a same-sex marriage row last year, Twinkies, which disappeared from shelves after a union dispute, and peanut butter and jello sandwiches.
Beck, a Tea Party pin-up and syndicated commentator and broadcaster, was due to address the gathering later in the evening. It marked a follow-up of sorts to his Restoring Honor rally, which was held at Washington's Lincoln Memorial in 2010.
He called Monday's celebration an "epic misfits ball" to rival the two inauguration balls held in honour of Obama, whom he prefers not to name.
"While that guy is having his ball, we're having ours," he said, adding that his guests would come from all walks of American life. "It should be everyone who is no longer welcome in 'Obamaland'… whoever's not allowed in that guy's America."
Um, Glenny, even you are welcome in my America. I believe in diversity even when it includes wingnut clowns who were *too extreme* for Fox News.
The worst thing about the party was the shitty food. Chick-Fil-A? Really, dude? It's just a pity that ya'll couldn't have borrowed this float from the Krewe du Vieux sub-krewe, Seeds of Decline, to spice up your sore losers ball:
