Glenn Beck is...................(fill in the blank)

It happens every World Cup just like clockwork. The far right whines about football (the real football where people use their feet). On cue Glenn Beck chimes in.

"It doesn't matter how you try to sell it to us,It doesn't matter how many celebrities you get, it doesn't matter how many bars open early, it doesn't matter how many beer commercials they run, we don't want the World Cup, we don't like the World Cup, we don't like soccer, we want nothing to do with it."

More Americans bought tickets for the current World Cup in South Africa than any other nation. How do you explain that, you cretin? I know what the answer would be, "They are not real Americans." It's amazing that people like him and Sarah Palin can determine from their lofty perches who or who is not a real American.

G. Gordon Liddy, famous ex-felon piped in as well:

"Whatever happened to American exceptionalism? This game ... originated with the South American Indians and instead of a ball, they used to use the head, the decapitated head, of an enemy warrior."

In their tiny minds American exceptionalism cannot apply to anything where we can't be number one. He's also wrong on the historical context of the origins of football but that matters little to people like him. More kids play football/soccer than any other sport in America. In their tiny minds we are obviously breeding a future generation of subversive foreign influenced citizens who are not 'real Americans'.

The World Cup brings people of the world together in a celebration that even exceeds the Olympics but that matters little to these people who believe other nations do not matter. The more the U.S. team succeeds, the more these idiots will get pissed off. If for no other reason, that gives reason to cheer them on.
