Beck hasn’t lost respect for all politicians, just most of them. On the right, he likes Utah’s Mike Lee, Texas’s Ted Cruz, and Kentucky’s Rand Paul. He respects anybody who goes to Washington and sticks to his principles — even the socialist senator Bernie Sanders. ‘I’m sure Bernie would disagree, but Bernie and I could be fast friends because he’s doing what he said he’d do,’ he says. ‘Same with Dennis Kucinich, aliens and all.’” – National Review
