The Overton Window: Glenn Beck

by the Left Coast Rebel

The nutroots are going AWOL over the Overton Window segment of Beck's show today. I think he certainly is onto something and it is anything but ridiculous to not assume that something like the overton window scenario is quite accurate:

Interestingly, the Overton Window is Google Trends top search right now. The Overton Window is a simple line-graph of the maddening dichotomy that we find ourselves in when we find Republicans doing the bidding of progressivism, liberalism, statism.

And the Overton Window is the reason that even through elections and 'D's and 'R's, we still keep marching to the dissolution of individual freedom.

Did I mention that Overtun Window is the title of Beck's upcoming book as well?
