Glenn Beck’s Chalkboard Is Trapped in the Closet
I noticed, on a visit to the offices of Americans for Tax Reform, that the chalkboard Glenn Beck gave to the American Conservative Union during CPAC was nowhere to be seen. (ACU’s David Keene had pledged to display it prominently at Grover Norquist’s weekly meeting of conservatives.) Nikki Schwab and Tara Palmeri ferret out the chalkboard’s location:
There was a grand unveiling ceremony the Wednesday following Beck’s appearance at CPAC. But since its unveiling, the board has yet to be used. Apparently, it got in the way of speakers who use microphones and PowerPoint slides to make their point.
“We haven’t gotten to the technology where we can use the chalkboard yet,” ATR Communications Director John Kartch told Yeas & Nays. “We’re not advanced enough for that yet.”
While ATR moved to a larger office in late 2008, and the new meeting room is fairly spacious, the Wednesday meetings are inevitably too crowded to make room for something as big as this.
