The sacred Day of Atonement has begun (at least here in Brooklyn) and to help those who are going to fast, let me mention Glenn Beck. Appetite gone, right?! Amazing. It's just as he'd want it, too, because, as I wrote in this PoliticsDaily piece, Beck has asked that we all fast on Yom Kippur--to "make it a day of Fast and Prayer for the Republic. Spread the word. Let us walk in the founders steps."The Founders all being Jews, of course.But that all is nothing compared to this clip of Katie Couric (or a viewer, actually) asking Beck what he meant by "white culture"--Beck accused Obama of hating white culture, which is...what, exactly, Mr. Beck?His, er, answer, is priceless. Video here.Via the indispensible Daily Dish.
