Glenn Beck was a guest on The View this morning. In one of the more odd explosive moments in the history of the show, this blow-up did not involve Elizabeth Hasselbeck. Instead, Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg were gravely offended by what Whoopi termed “lies” about a Beck radio-show account of a recent Amtrak train ride he (and they) took. (Whoopi’s actual phrase was that Beck is “a lying sack o’ dog mess.”) Beck felt he’d been pushed aside by Amtrak employees catering to Whoopi and Barbara. The View women disagreed, quite vehemently:
