Conservative radio and television talk show Glenn Beck is coming to Tampa this weekend.

According to the web site of Tampa 9-12 The former 970 WFLA talk show host, whose career has blown up in '09, will be appearing in Tampa this Saturday at Borders on South Dale Mabry Highway. Beck will be signing copies of his NY Times best-seller Arguing with Idiots.

Yesterday Beck's  latest book, The Christmas Sweater: A Picture Book, debuted at #1 on the Times children's picture book bestseller list, prompting his publisher last week to declare that that gave Beck 5 consecutive #1 NYT bestsellers.

I'm not sure if that's correct or not, but the man is selling loads of  books, and getting ratings on the radio, and on his Fox News show.

Beck has taken pride this in publicizing and mobilizing opposition to Van Jones, President Obama's original green jobs czar who ended up resigning in early September after taking a pounding by the talk show host for his 'radical' past.

Today the Huffington Post is reporting that on Beck's guest list of late have been "white supremacists and other extremists."

Beck's comment earlier that President Obama was racist led to over 30 advertisers leaving his Fox News program.  However, Fox didn't lose any revenue as most of those companies ended up advertising on other Fox programs.
