You all know and love R. Lee Ermey for his iconic role as the Drill
Sergeant Instructor in Full Metal Jacket. In real life he was, pretty much the drill instructor in Full Metal Jacket—that is a real D.I. in the Marines. And as much as you liked him before, you will probably love him even more when you see him go full metal Glenn Beck in this video clip:
And I don’t mean that in a tongue and cheek fashion. That is pretty much Beck’s theory in a nutshell, love it or hate it. I tend to be more of a “never assign to malice what can be better explained as incompetence” kind of guy, so that is my explanation for the last two years. But I admit sometimes you wonder if they are doing it on purpose.
Update: Thanks to Lopez in the comments who corrected me for incorrectly referring to the good man as a Drill Instructor. And thanks to AD for another embarrassing typo. Dang that lexdysia!
