How much does influential Fox News host, Tea Party proponent, and avid conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck love Canadian soft rock singer Michael Buble? Enough to dedicate his entire Tuesday show to the quintuple Grammy-winner. If you happened to miss the hour-long love-fest between Beck and Buble, here are the highlights, with brief video at the bottom. Beck opens:
If you haven't heard Michael Buble sing, you haven't heard anybody sing. If you haven't seen him in concert, you have never been to a real performance. Michael Buble for the full hour.
Beck on Buble's Home Country
O Canada, I mean, it's not that hard. I mean you're Canadian and, no, yes. I mean -- but it's not really hard to be a success in Canada.Oh, you can so much hate me over in Canada. [...] Will you take some of us across the border? If things really start to melt down, can we come across the border?
On the Issues That Matter:
BECK: Is there any truth to the -- well, to the fact now that you are
a hermaphrodite? Is there?
BUBLE: It's obvious.
BECK: It really is.
Beck Channels His Critics:
If he starts to cry I'm going to bust out and we're going to start talking. I'm going to get the chalkboard out and I'm going to show his connections to communism. There may not be any but I'm going to find them!
On Beck's penchant for weeping mid-broadcast:
BUBLE: And you are passionate, to say the least, like I don't know -- I'm not lying. I don't know what you're like when you're talking, what the story is that you're actually saying.
BUBLE: but I want to cry. Really, because you say it -- you're so -- I don't know if I want to cry or I want to buy it or whatever it is.
BECK: Let me ask you a question, I get a lot of heat because I'm just.
BUBLE: Because you're passionate.
BECK: Yes, and I don't really care. I don't -- I mean, look at me. I don't really -- you can't get any worse than this, you really can't.
BECK: So -- but people are like, men don't cry.
BUBLE: Bull, bull, they cry. Real men cry -- a lot.
BECK: Back in a second.
BUBLE: I love you, man!
