Glenn Beck\’s rally was about as angry as a Teletubbies episode. – By David Weigel – Slate Magazine

The Democrats who pre-butted [Glenn] Beck’s [Restoring America] rally by predicting an overtly political hateananny were played for suckers…  It’s the total package he sells: membership in a corny, righteous, Mormonism-approved-by-John Hagee cultural family. The anger is what the media focus on, he says, joking several times about what “the press” will do to twist his words…

Beck’s rally ends just as he said it would—without incident, political or otherwise. He’s just taken the world’s most derided TV audience, put them in the National Mall, and presided over the world’s largest megachurch. “Bring out the bagpipes,” he says. Bagpipe players then walk onto his stage, and the sound of “Amazing Grace” fills the mall.
