What's truly infuriating about all this is the White House's insane response. And yes, it's an insane response. No press conference, no addressing the issue or talking to the public about it. A talking head for the 'silent majority' (are they really a majority?) accuses an aide of soliciting propaganda? Fine, we'll just fire the aide.

Between this and the gradual dissolution of any meaningful health-care reform, I'm starting to lose any faith I had in this administration.

Does anyone know anything about the artist who recorded this conference call and sent it to Glenn Beck? Who is this guy? Who does stuff like that?

Hi Josh,

It wasn't an artist. It was Patrick Courrielche (Yosi Sergant’s former boss). Createquity's Ian Moss has the lowdown (he has been outstanding on this):

It’s worth noting that no one, other than the 75 call participants and Beck himself, has actually heard the entire audio recording of the call; that’s because the man driving this story, Patrick Courrielche (who just happens to be Yosi Sergant’s former boss), secretly recorded the conversation and went straight to Beck with it.

Grover has his eye on more than the NEA:

"My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years," he says, "to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub."
