Glenn Beck flunks spelling on national TV

On his television show today, Glenn Beck thought he was making a clever word game with his accusations issues about Barack Obama. Beck wrote on a blackboard: “Obama,” “Left,” “Internationalists,” “ACORN-style organizations,” “Revolution,” and “Hidden Agendas.” After circling the first initial of each entry, Beck wrote, “OLIGARH.” “Oligarch!” Beck exclaimed, after noting that “one letter is missing.” But what was the missing letter Beck had in mind? Not the “c,” which would have correctly spelled the word, but a “y.” “I don’t know if we’re turning into an oligarchy or what we’re turning into,” Beck said melodramatically. “But unless you ask, ‘Why?’ we’re going to transform into something.” Would that be an oligarhy?
