You couldn't sell two copies if you pressed a double album

They're still not paying us, but . . .

I think I mentioned this before someplace, but I don't remember when or where. When I was at Atlanta's airport waiting for my connecting flight two months ago, this book was everywhere. Anyway, why is he wearing a German army uniform?

I guess he's saying the Germans argue with idiots a lot. Or maybe arguing with idiots has the side effect of turning you German. Or maybe it's not really a German uniform. It kind of looks Italian to me. Maybe it's just because the general outline of the German uniform somehow says "badass" and/or "intimidating" in America (it really does!)

Well, it looks like a present-day german uniform. My guess is that he wanted to go with a bad-ass SS uniform, but his publishers didn't allow him, or he thought that all German uniforms are Nazi uniforms or whatever. Thus he ended up with a uniform of an army that is widely considered a bunch of pacifists in uniforms.

The hat indeed looks more Italian than German. Maybe people who can't decide which army they support are the "idiots"?

Ha ha maybe they are! Well Beck's arguing with them, we know that.

So, wikipedia says it's an East German uniform. And the premise of the book is Mr Beck (in founding father costumes) argues with the idiot (as depicted on the cover).

Hell is freezing over once more? Glenn Beck and I agree? How to resolve this conundrum? Are Eastern Germans no idiots after all?

So to me he seems to be saying that everyone Eastern Germans argue with are idiots? That seems to be unnecessarily limiting his market appeal to me. Maybe he sells an extraordinary number of books there.

No, you got that wrong the Eastern Germans are the idiots. That's also why he has that 'Я' in there. Fucking commies and their fucked up letters.

But he's dressed as an Eastern German! Is he portraying himself as an idiot? That seems uncharacteristically candid for him.

Maybe he raped and killed a woman in Eastern Germany?

I looked on snopes.com and it doesn't say that he didn't!
