Watch this

If nothing else, watch the first 1 1/2 minutes. Friggin’ amazing. How does this person host a show? And how does this woman have a voice?

Dear God. Reading from your own journal? The Statue of Liberty out the window?

Lord, help us. Please help us.

PS: Andrew Sullivan was good enough to transcribe Beck’s opening passage, which was—in the most self-indulgent moment in recorded television—from straight from his diary. I love how, when he says that, Palin nods knowingly—two nuts bonding: Tomorrow I meet Sarah Palin and family for the first time. I am actually a little nervous as she is one of the only people that I can see who can possibly lead us out of where we are in. I don’t know yet if she’s strong enough if she’s well-enough advised, or if she knows she can no longer trust anyone. I don’t know if she can lead us and not lose her soul.
