Responding to Glenn Beck's Detroit

Glenn Beck compared Detroit to Hiroshima yesterday. He argues that the problems that Detroit faces today are our own fault for electing Democrats.

When I first heard it, I thought that this was simply another in his long string of over-the-top messages that are largely intended to a) illicit a strong, emotional response and b) help Glenn Beck gain more attention and higher ratings. I wasn't going to respond at first because that simply gives him the one thing that he craves more than anything else - added attention.

Unfortunately, Glenn Beck's comments have ignited enough discussion that I feel compelled to respond. Luckily for me, my response to ruin porn fits can also serve as a response to Glenn Beck as well.

Glenn Beck is officially the new ruin porn.
