Dems Protest over Glenn Beck Tribute

Bud Norris didn't realize what a firestorm he had created.

The Mount Vernon, WA mayor decreed that September 26 would be known as Glenn Beck Day. He also scheduled a ceremony to give Beck a key to the city that the Fox cable host was born in.

"I don't know if I expected the magnitude of resistance," Norris told CNN. But he also indicated that he has received "a tremendous amount of positive response."

Norris has known Beck since Beck's parents owned a bakery in Mount Vernon. The city official feels as though Beck's success story should inspire all Mount Vernon residents regardless of their politics.

Evidently, some Dems disagree. Democrat groups have led protests in the city over the Beck salute.
