How Much Does Glenn Beck Pay Brian Sack to Make Tasteless Sarah Palin Jokes?

Image from GBTV “Regardless what you think of her, this rumor stuff is getting absolutely ridiculous. I don’t believe Sarah Palin slept with Glenn Rice, and this rumor-mongering is unfair to her kids — Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper, Trig and Dunky.
