fter the Republicans' 1994 landslide victory in the House, they rewarded chief GOP "cheerleader" Rush Limbaugh with "the unique title of honorary member of Congress," says Karl Frisch at The Moderate Voice. For the party's most recent electoral victory, Glenn Beck should get the same honor. Like Limbaugh in '94, nobody has done more than Beck this year to lead the GOP out of the political wilderness. Here's an excerpt:

When the Republican Party was in shambles after losing control of both the House and Senate in 2006 followed by the White House in 2008, it was Beck who went about building and promoting the Tea Party movement and his own 9/12 faction....

Beck's promotion of these fringe festivals provided the ground troops a distraught, depressed, and lethargic Republican Party needed to mount the massive ground campaign necessary if there was to be any hope of success for the GOP in 2010.

Heck, the Republican majority shouldn't just make Beck an honorary member of Congress for all of his hard work, it should elect him president of the incoming freshman class.
