Yesterday on his radio show, Glenn Beck warned Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert that if they’re not careful … they’ll “go the way of Oprah.” Beck was specifically warning them against their planned Washington, DC, rallies, PopEater reports. “I believe that those who play these games at this point, who are not honest, who are in bed with the special interests, who are in bed with what America knows is wrong, they will go the way of Oprah Winfrey,” he said … but what did he mean?

Perhaps he was referring to Oprah’s ratings dip since making her first public political endorsement—for Barack Obama. Even so, “Judge Judy is beating Oprah in the ratings right now, but even politicos like Sarah Palin and Obama know when you want to sell something, you visit the great O,” writes Rob Shuter.
