Glenn Beck on Chess: Pawns Don’t Matter

Another subject on which the vile Fox News know-nothing propagandist purports to be an expert.


“OK. Any doubt in your mind that they're just going to throw these people — you know, I was thinking about — you and I were talking before I went on the show. And I asked somebody to go get a chess set, and a very nice one at this. Can we get a shot at this chess set?

“This is like ACORN. I keep thinking of these people, because I play chess — poorly, but I play chess. And the pawns don't matter. They just don't matter to me. When you're playing chess, it doesn't matter. You can take all the pawns. Who cares? It doesn't matter.

“The only thing that really matters is the king, and in this case — in ACORN — the king is a white guy, sitting there. I mean, it doesn't matter if everybody else is mowed down as long as he gets his cash.”
What did Philidor know, anyway?
