Glenn Beck - WTF?

I was going to write a post about how Bill O'Reilly of Fox News seems to have a more level head and is more of a reporter than an ideological pundit, but this video changed the intent of this post.

Apparently Glenn Beck (who is the Lou Dobbs of Fox News) and makes a living off of playing into people's fears is quoted to say:

"I think John McCain would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama," Beck told Couric in the debut episode of her new web show, @katiecouric.

"I can't believe I'm saying this," Beck said, "I think I would have much preferred [Hillary Clinton] as president and may have voted for her against John McCain."

I'm just not sure how to take this one. Either I respect Beck a little bit more OR he has ruined all of his credibility as he likely voted for McCain and beat that drum during the election and seemily works everyday to play into people's worst fears about Obama (you know - socialist out to destroy capitalism and turn the White House into a pyramid).

Here's the video
