Glenn Beck's Selected Poems is thankfully not real

I've never quite forgiven "The Boiling Point" by Mikhaela Reid for replaced my beloved This Modern World by Tom Tomorrow in The Metro Times. Granted, it isn't her fault. But it's kind of like how when you don't like the woman your ex starts dating after you, even though she may be a perfectly nice person. But this week's comic (which is also Reid's last) is quite good. It deals with the Texas text book fiasco. And it includes a (thankfully fictitious) book of poems by Glenn Beck.

For more on the Texas school text book fiasco, The Daily Show did a great segment on it.

And for good measure, there's a This Modern World comic that also addresses the idiots in Texas.
