Glenn Beck’s helping hand offer to Tim Tebow

Tebow! Tebow! Tebow! Buried behind Glenn Beck’s strange and idiotic rant about how terrible RGIII’s new house must be (yes, Glenn, Northern Virginia is very expensive but it’s not on Manhattan’s level and the house is not in Great Falls, it’s in the sticks, so that’s why it is “only” $2.5M), there is an even worse idea. It is a bad idea whose time may have come. I...
