The Insufferable Arrogance of Being

My vote originally for "Most Insufferable Personality This Week" was Michael Ignatieff during his CBC Sunday interview: it is, after all, hard work being patronizing to Evan Solomon!

But he has been superseded but my discovery of a Glenn Beck store! Of all the astoundingly stupid items there (the "Baby's Last Christmas" ornament; the truly awful reading of Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart"), one is perhaps the most jaw-droppingly obnoxious, arrogant, and patronizing item I've seen since a Cheney interview:

It's a bad "art-deco"-ish poster of the World Trade Center towers with the word "Remember" along the bottom, and who looks like The Glenn Himself standing before them. The kicker is that he's signed every copy.

So for those of you who wanted to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the attacks, but weren't sure if just an image of the Towers was enough, here's your chance!
