Since Fox News and Glenn Beck announced on earlier Wednesday that Beck would be leaving his Fox show, Twitter’s been all a-twitter about his exit, what it means and where he should end up. A few choice quips:

Piers Morgan: ‘1st @kingsthings then Regis, @katiecouric, Meredith, and now Mr this rate I’ll soon be longest serving daily US host.’


Keith Olbermann: ‘One should presume Lonesome Rhodes Beck will attempt to start his own All-Beck TV/radio enterprise like the original Howard Stern model.’ Followed by: ‘On the other hand, Beck asking Tea Partiers to PAY for anything may be a dangerously bad business decision.’

Richard Roeper: ‘Glenn Beck to leave Fox News. Announcement causes immediate, drastic fall in stock price of chalkboards, Hitler graphics and bottled crazy.’

Joy Behar: ‘Glenn Beck is leaving Fox. Where’s he gonna go? The Oprah Network? I give him 20 minutes alone in a room with @Rosie.’

John Fugelsang of ‘Politically Incorrect’: ‘Glenn Beck is looking forward to more free time to insult Jews privately, around his family.’

Neal Brennan, ‘Chapelle’s Show’ writer: ‘Glenn Beck leaving Fox News to join a network where his views will be believable: The Syfy Channel.’
