Glenn Beck is known for doing bizarre things sometimes--such as threatening to cut a bunny in half with a chainsaw--and his Friday show opened on what might be one of his strangest stunts. Beck was wearing a cape--or cloak, or robe, depending on how you look at it--and holding a staff.
He told viewers that, if they hadn't been frightened watching his shows on Egypt all week, "you will be" after watching Friday's show. (He said these words in a Yoda-like voice.) But he gave no explanation as to why he was dressed the way he was, and after the opening credits, the cape and staff had disappeared. Was Beck casting himself as a latter-day Moses? Or Gandalf? Or Dumbledore? Or even Yoda? We'll never know.
