We can't afford debt, so let's sell bonds!

Glenn Beck must be on the verge of a mental breakdown- assuming he was ever sane to begin with, that is. His opening rant today couldn't even manage to stay internally consistent. Although the majority of it seemed to be focused on criticizing the Obama administration's Afghanistan policy (or lack thereof), he also took a brief detour into ranting about the US national debt. Then, not even three minutes later, Beck advocated selling war bonds to finance the continuation of hostilities in Afghanistan. Apparently, Beck doesn't understand that selling bonds is borrowing money. Here's the video- with the two excerpts (it repeats three times to drive home the point):

Beck can't even manage to stay internally consistent for five minutes. Can any of his fans explain to me why people listen to this clown?
