In a video released on the Blaze, Glenn Beck disclosed that he has a very good reason for looking insane. He says for the last five years he’s suffered from a series of health conditions that “quite honestly made me look crazy.”
Beck has tried for years to get answers to why his “hands, feet, arms and legs would feel like someone had just crushed them or set them on fire or pushed broken glass into my feet.” to no avail. He also has trouble sleeping, saying that he hasn’t had a decent night’s sleep in a decade.
Most afternoons my hands will start to shake, or my hands and feet will curl up. When it gets real bad, my friends try to uncurl me.
Beck says doctors tell him the condition is common for “people in his position,” comparing him to Presidents and Winston Churchill. He says he was told that within 10 years he would barely be able to function.
He says after years of trying to get to the bottom of the problem he was diagnosed with an unspecified auto-immune disorder and adrenal fatigue. Not to worry, Beck fans. With a little hormone therapy, electric stimulation and faith in God, he’s turned the corner and will soon have no excuse for looking crazy.
From a layman’s point of view and many episodes of House, it sounds like Beck is quite simply a bona fide nutbar. Having experienced years of Beck first hand, because I’m somewhat a glutton for punishment, my conclusion is megalomania and narcissism with a touch of “everyone look at me.”
Glenn Beck doesn’t really need an excuse for looking crazy, because that’s not why we know he’s crazy. The stuff that comes out of his mouth makes his seem crazy, not his body movements. I can only imagine the amount of money he spends on publicists.
I’m sure his fans and the conservative world at large will be weeping for one of their heroes and Googling “Winston Churchill” for weeks to come.
If this is for real, which I can’t help but seriously doubt, I wish the Sultan of Stupid a speedy recovery.
