Conservatives embrace Ashton Kutcher's straight talk

Take Sen. Ted Cruz. Earlier this week, the possible 2016 Republican contender for the White House took the time to tweet Ashton Kutcher's remarks accepting the Awards' main honor, calling it a "remarkable speech."

Beck bids Fox farewell

(CNN) Glenn Beck's farewell show Thursday had the usual elements of long monologues and chalkboards, aside from one usual theme- the host did not shed a tear.

The conservative pundit capitalized on the popularity of his nightly Fox News program and foreshadowed big plans for the future, telling viewers, "This show has become a movement. It's not a TV show. And that's why it doesn't belong on television anymore. It belongs in your home. It belongs in your neighborhoods. Not really television."

Cindy McCain blasts Glenn Beck

(CNN)- Cindy McCain isn't a fan of conservative host Glenn Beck. The wife of Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain tweeted her disdain for the departing Fox News pundit Wednesday saying, "I'm so glad Glenn Beck is leaving Fox. Enough vitriol and hate."

And if Beck was confused about his role on the network, which he's often equated with being an entertainer, Mrs. McCain sought to clear it up.

Huckabee blasts Glenn Beck

(CNN)- Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has a bone to pick with Glenn Beck. The current Fox News host isn't pleased that Beck, a departing Fox News host, has called him a progressive, a term which Beck has also previously likened to cancer and the Nazi movement.

Beck also compared Huckabee to Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain on his radio show Tuesday, labeling both as progressives, because of Huckabee's vocal support for Michelle Obama's anti-obesity initiatives.

Beck's message: Fix your 'self'

Beck's message: Fix your 'self'

(CNN) - Fox News anchor Glenn Beck knows how you can fix yourself, and he's written a book about it. In his new self-help book, "The Seven: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life," he extols the virtues of looking inward to fix the country. In Beck's words "We fix our country by fixing our self. It's not going to be fixed in Washington."

Appearing on NBC's "Today" Wednesday to promote "The Seven," Beck adamantly denied that he has ever contributed to a politically charged climate with statements made in jest, including when he said he wanted to poison Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi or beat Congressman Charlie Rangel with a shovel.

Plouffe: Republicans are getting 'the Mike Castle treatment'

Akron, Ohio (CNN) – David Plouffe, one of President Obama's top political advisers, said Tuesday that the Republican Party has been overwhelmed by a "Beck-Palin-Limbaugh wing" that will make it impossible for the GOP to nominate a viable general election candidate in 2012.

"If you are a moderate Republican thinking about running in a primary for any office in 2011 and 2012, you are going to have to think twice, because you are going to get the Mike Castle treatment," Plouffe said in an interview in Ohio, where he is campaigning for Gov. Ted Strickland. "So they are going to nominate more and more extreme Republicans who are doing very well among that Palin-Limbaugh-Beck base."

Palin talks presidential announcement

 Sarah Palin discussed a potential 'big national announcement' at an event in Alaska on Saturday.
Sarah Palin discussed a potential 'big national announcement' at an event in Alaska on Saturday.

(CNN) – When Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck teamed up for a September 11 commemoration in Alaska over the weekend, the talk-radio host couldn't help but ask the former vice presidential nominee if she was going to run for president.

Palin deflected the question, according to the Anchorage Daily News, but did say where she would make her big announcement, that is, if there is a big announcement to make.

"If there is going to be some big national announcement I'm going to do it where it's most worthy. I'm going to do something big, even bigger than Glenn Beck. It's going to happen on the Bob and Mark show," she said, referencing Alaska's KWHL's talk radio show.

After the wildly successful rally on the National Mall, Palin and Beck teamed up again for the event in Alaska over the weekend – but this time for a cost.

Palin, Beck team up on 9/11 event

Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck will appear together at an event in Alaska on September 11.
Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck will appear together at an event in Alaska on September 11.

(CNN) - After a wildly successful rally on the National Mall, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are teaming up again - but this time for a cost.

The two conservative rock-stars are set to appear together in Alaska on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks in an event that costs a minimum of $65 to attend.

"We can count on Glenn to make the night interesting and inspiring, and I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will 'never forget,'" said Palin on her Facebook page earlier this week. "Hope to see you there!"

But in sharp contrast to the free event in Washington last month, tickets to this latest Palin-Beck affair run as high as $225 – a price tag that some Democrats are making hay about given the somber timing of the event.

But Christopher Cox, the Anchorage-based promoter of the event, told the Anchorage Daily News the date is purely coincidental and was originally scheduled for a week earlier.
