Chad Ochocinco Is Reading Glenn Beck’s New Book And Thinks His Political Views Are “Epic”

Chad Ochocinco claims to know politics. And whether in an effort to promote the notion of bipartisanship, or simply to stir people up, the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver tweeted on Saturday that he had started reading Glenn Beck’s new book Broke, and that the conservative radio host’s views on political and economic issues were “epic.”

Here’s what it looks like when Chad Ochocinco tweets at a conservative cable news pundit:

Needless to say, Ochocinco received some negative backlash and unfollows from his selection of airplane literature, though the Twitter guru was quick to point out that he was not a conservative and that — as of Chapter 3 — everything Beck said was “either common or his opinion based off research.” We’re assuming he meant “common sense,” which seems like a far cry from “epic,” but fortunately we might not have to wait long to learn the distinction, as the political commentator tweeted back that he would love to have Ochocinco on his show.

Ocho’s response? “Whenever you’re ready.”

    If I were a player in a major league sport, I don’t think I’d weant to associate myself with Glenn Beck.  Almost one year ago, Albert Pujols appeared on stage with Beck at his revival-tent show in Washington, DC.  At the time Pujols’s numbers were at Triple-Crown levels.  Almost immediately thereafter, he went into a slump and other players in the league beat him out with HR, batting average and  RBI numbers.  Fast forward to this season, and his slump has continued, with an average that;s stuck WAY below .300, the minimum to be taken seriously as a hitter.

    You’re probably right. Chad may never even approach .300 now that he has admitted he shares some conservative views with the likes of  Mr. Beck
