    Wowza. Controversial political commentator Glenn Beck was on Fox News on Tuesday night, lamenting his time as a host on the network. He told Megyn Kelly on her primetime show that despite having an “awful lot of fun,” he regrets his contribution to the divisive political climate in our country.

    “I remember it as an awful lot of fun and that I made an awful lot of mistakes, and I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language because I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart,” he said.

    So Glenn Beck, Vince Vaughn, and A Christmas Story creator Peter Billingsley are getting together to make us a new reality TV show: The Pursuit of Truth. Of course it's called that, because Loopy-Ass Conspiracy Theory of the Day doesn't quite capture the whole scope of what they're aiming for here.

    No, this is a reality TV show in search of "the next great documentary filmmaker." Pursuit of Truth will air on Glenn Beck's new network, TheBlazeTV, and will feature documentaries submitted for Glenn, Vince, and Peter's consideration for greatness. And if it seems like I'm having a hard time taking this whole thing seriously, it's because did you not see? Glenn Beck and Vince Vaughn. Anyway, here's what they have in mind.

    Glenn Beck has always been something of a character. From his frequent cry fests to his insistence on food storage to his chalkboard -- the man has always been a little bit zany (bless his heart) and slightly apoplectic.

    So of course the 2012 election cycle is going to bring out a bit of extra, shall we say, enthusiasm from the Beckster. A self-proclaimed Constitutionalist, Glenn has made his living by pointing out some of the shadier aspects of politics and how our politicians don’t always follow the principles laid out in our founding document.

    Glenn Beck is ticked off. Shocker, I know, but it's what he's so angry about today that has a lot of people talking ... and laughing. Beck is mad at Levi's jeans. He used to love Levi's, he says, but no longer. No longer! Not after their new commercial that aired during Monday Night Football. He's ready to retire his beloved jeans with their little red tags now that Levi's "Go Forth" ad campaign encourages "socialism" and "glorifies revolution."

    And I just thought it was a beautiful, well shot ad that showed a bunch of hipsters chillin' in Levi's. Silly me.

    This week, Obama for America (OFA) launched a new watchdog website called Hey, it makes sense with all of these terrorists putting bombs in their panties that if you see something suspicious, you should say something.

    Except that is not for reporting potential threats to national security. It’s for reporting dissent against President Obama.

    Like Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck is someone who shouldn't be given the time of day, but for some reason, the verbal diarrhea he can't help but spew continues to make national news. But you know, maybe it's actually worth discussing because it embodies the ignorance and insensitivity that continue to pervade the U.S. His most recent comments are the perfect case-in-point.

    On his radio show on Tuesday, he broached the topic of the use of the term "African-American." Apparently, Beck thinks "African-American" is inaccurate, and "colored" is more appropriate. OMFG. Can we please just put this guy, Rep. Joe Wilson, and Rep. Doug Lamborn in some kind of shuttle built exclusively for raging racist Republicans and launch them out into space?!

    Oh, and somehow, this discussion escalated from bad to worse.

    This week Glenn Beck served up some boneheaded comments on the Norway shooting, comparing the innocent teenagers who were shot by crazed gunman Anders Behring Breivik to Hitler's youth. Apparently Beck is one of the few Americans who can simultaneously twist his body so that his head is up his ass and his foot is in his mouth. Quite a feat! With talents like that, he'd make a great addition to the circus. Or Cirque du Soleil.

    Oh, but it gets better. Beck's problem with the poor kids is the fact that they were attending a camp on the island of Utoya that's owned by the Norwegian Labor Party. His victim-blaming came out on his radio show:

  • 5 Worst Glenn Beck Moments

    Glenn Beck was never one for subtlety, so his quiet departure Thursday night from Fox News was perhaps surprising given how much harm he has done during his two years on the air.

    There is no doubt Beck is a passionate person. And as he leaves to pursue a paid Internet channel called GBTV, it's clear we haven't seen the last of him. In fact, he promised, "You will pray for the time I was only on the air for one hour a day." Well, maybe so. But there is no time like the present to wrap up his major media presence.

    Of course, the damage he has done with his rabble rousing and incendiary language is already done. He has filled his listeners with half-truths and used fear as a weapon against the other side. There are so many ways he made the world a worse place. I truly hope he is gone for good, but I worry this will only give him more power.

    Here are 5 of Glenn Beck's worst moments:

    The other night Glenn Beck and his family went to see an Alfred Hitchcock movie (The 39 Steps) at Bryant Park, an outdoor park in New York City behind the New York City library. Sounds like a fun night, but according to Beck, it was a "hostile situation."

    As Beck relayed on The Glenn Beck Program, someone kicked wine on his wife Tanya and drenched her, another man shouted at his wife and daughter saying that he hated conservatives, and others took photos of them. "These people were some of the most hateful people I have ever seen," says Beck. He also mentioned that he's sure he would have been lynched if a rope were provided and that his own security detail said the situation could very well have escalated had Beck and his family not remained so civil.

    Sounds absolutely awful. So why didn't Beck and his family just leave?

    Glenn Beck only has four days left on Fox, but he seems determined to make them count. Today he accused New York Times columnist David Carr of saying the kinds of things that lead to death camps. For once, he would have almost had me, until he decided to take it too far.

    On Bill Maher's June 24 show, Carr said that those who live in the middle of the country are "Low-Sloping Foreheads." He is a snob, that much is sure. He is also wrong. Many of the middle states -- like Ohio, for instance -- are very divided politically, which means there are equal amounts of those Carr would dismiss as Neanderthal and those he would consider intelligent and progressive like himself.

    Beck took him to task for these comments and rightly so. To summarily dismiss one entire portion of the population is to prove yourself a giant, obnoxious snob, which is everything many people think the writers at the New York Times are anyway. Nice work, Carr.
