Glenn Beck--Mommy's shoes don't fit

When Glenn Beck learned that his gathering of wingnuts in Washington, D.C., on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, coincided with the anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech, he was quick to claim he was "reclaiming" the movement that "we" launched.

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart characterization of the event as "I Have a Scheme" is pretty good, but a much better, and serious, comment is provided by Leonard Pitts Jr. (quoted at Washington Monthly, where Steve Benen commented that Beck's minions are "trying to lift a mantle that doesn't fit on their shoulders."). Benen's comment brought to mind all those pictures of toddlers dressing up in their parents' clothes and coming nowhere near filling them.

Hi! May I borrow this image? I'm creating a web banner for our women's small group bible study and I think this fits perfectly!
