The Chris & Glenn Show

Second District candidate Chris Stewart touted a pre-convention interview with his good buddy and occassional collaborator Glenn Beck on Beck's GBTV.

Some highlights:

Post a Comment

• Glenn tells his good friend that he's a terrible politician;

• Glenn is concerned about his buddy losing his soul, because in Washington "they gobble souls." Stewart's wife is also worried about Stewart losing his soul;

• Stewart says this election is the most important since 1860 -- when Abraham Lincoln was elected -- and if President Barack Obama is re-elected, the country will never be able to recover;

• The nation is on the brink of "national suicide" because of debt.

Beck's big finish: "Please don't vote for him because I don't want my friend going to Washington."

Not stated, but obvious: We. Surround. Them.
