I think he becKKKster is feeling the waters for a run for the white house in 2012. I already see Beck/Palin 2012 (and Palin/Beck 2012) bumper stickers in my very republican neck of the woods. If they don't try, the only reason will be that neither of those total prima donnas will want to be VP! I think becKKK, at this point, is looking for more power and followers, and money of course. Adulation, though, has to be a pretty powerful drug. I've never seen anyone who had it and voluntarily gave it away. Fundie preachers, rock stars and actors, sports stars, some politicians come to mind.
I'm seeing right now, though, that he's working on keeping the mormons on board while convincing the other fundies that he's a serious preacher dude, or at least should be seen as one. Jedweber had some excellent links so I'm not going to add more. I'm a little surprised that he's given up the gay marriage opposition, but I see that as calculating as well.
Will it get him more sheeple to drop the gay issue and maybe get some gays behind him or at least their friends and families? Or does that cost him too many of his fundie and catholic followers? From the press I see, I expect god to tell him shortly that he better get back on the gay-bashing bus as his lemmings want that. And BecKKK wants nothing more than to give them what they want as long as he's being worshipped all the way to the bank.
His current agenda seems to mainly be a semi-covert white supremacy playing on the fears of old white folks that their world is changing is fundamental ways. They've always known an America that deep-down, knew that "real Americans" are the white ones. Of course the irony of that is they came over here and committed genocide against the people who already lived here, but nobody talks about that.
Actually I disagree with the subject line of this thread---Glenn BeckKK is a lot of things, but he's closer to an evil genius than he is to being stupid. And by himself it wouldn't be such a big deal. It's his followers that are as dumb as dirt, and as bigoted as any southern sheriff that ever lived. Without lemmings to lead, BecKKK would just be a ridiculous radio/TV shock jock. It's all those scared old white people who believe everything that comes out of his mouth that are the problem.
