Glenn Beck labels Mike Huckabee ‘Progressive.’ Huck calls Beck ‘inept’

Fox Newsers Glenn Beck and Mike Huckabee are in the midst of a war of words.

On his radio show earlier this week (audio after the jump), Beck labeled Huckabee a “progressive” which is a four-letter word in Beck’s dictionary. “Look at his record. He’s a progressive,” said Beck arguing that Huckabee supporting Michelle Obama‘s anti-obesity campaign is anti-conservative.

This morning on his blog, Huck fired back:

He seems to fancy himself a prophet of sorts for his linking so many people and events together to describe a massive global conspiracy for pretty much everything. Sadly, he seems equally inept at recognizing the obvious fact that children are increasingly obese and that we now see clinical evidence of diseases in children that as recent as 20 years ago were found only in adults, such as Type 2 diabetes.

Beck needs to stick to conspiracies that can’t be so easily de-bunked by facts. Why Beck has decided to aim his overloaded guns on me is beyond me. But he ought to clean his gun and point it more carefully lest it blow up in his face like it did this time.
