Pat, there's a difference between liking a book and incorporating some or most of it into how you view the world. I liked, say, David McCullough's book on the Panama Canal. But other than making me fond of the concept of water lock canals, it doesn't really inform my view of the world. You won't find references to it in my everyday conversation, I don't even know Mr. McCullough's politics, and I don't make a point of recommending it to people. However, these are all true in the case of Glenn Beck and The 5,000 Year Leap. Since man is in many ways the sum of his experiences, I think it's entirely fair to bring up this book, and it's author in connection to Beck. Your politics is showing.
