McCain "Honored" By Beck Insult

Conservative commentator Glenn Beck caused a bit of a stir this week, saying on the debut of @katiecouric, Katie Couric's new web-only interview show, that Sen. John McCain "would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama." (watch the Beck interview at left)

Beck also told Couric that McCain was a "weird progressive" like Theodore Roosevelt.

Well, McCain took that as a compliment, saying on the "The Early Show" Wednesday that "any time my name is mentioned in the same breath as Teddy Roosevelt, I am honored. Teddy Roosevelt's my hero."
