Or at least live surrounded by his things.
Glenn Beck is auctioning off a whole slew of items from his home and donating the process to charity (that “Glenn will choose and announce on an upcoming show“).
What sorts of things? A ceramic rooster, for one. And apparently there is a market for ceramic roosters because the bidding on this one — “made in Italy. Has one chip on the tip of the tail” — is up to $176.00.
Alas, so far no sign of the Mao doll.
We asked Glenn what was had inspired all this giving and here’s what he told us.
“As a recovering alcoholic, I know how to have a good time so my wife and I recently went through all of our stuff in storage. It sounds almost as fun as losing her dress last weekend. We found a lot of good stuff that we just don’t need so we are putting it up for auction with the proceeds going to help others. While it may seem like a simple thing, I’ve come to realise its important to take stock of our lives, especially during the holiday season, and clean out what just isn’t necessary. And who knows, maybe the Woodrow Wilson library is searching online for some new furniture. Well today is their lucky day.”
Every president should be so, um, lucky as to have a Glenn Beck. And because we know you wanted to know, all items will include an Authenticity Certificate signed by Beck stating that the item was owned by him. Peruse the selection below and do your shopping here.

What Glenn says about it...
Tania and I bought this three years ago for our kitchen. It goes well with the round kitchen table and chairs. It looks very handmade and Old World. Very heavy. Very big.'
'Fake books secret boxes 3 included in the set. 13 inch by 9 inch, 10 inch by 6 1/2 inch, 9 1/2 by 6 inches all books have magnetic lid.'
'This is a colourful ceramic rooster. Made in Italy. Has one chip on the tip of the tail. .'
'This Kitchen Table and Chair set is in great condition. The chairs and table do have some regular wear that can be seen in the photos, but are otherwise in great shape. The Table has two extensions that can be added to increase the length of the table. The chairs all have painted words on the back rest. The words are, honour, Forgiveness, Honest, Endurance, Faith, Patriotism, Self-Discipline, Courage, Charity and Hope. The overall length of the table with the extensions is 128'.'
'This is gorgeous Black Ornate Eagle Chair with Gold Trim. It is in great shape and has only a little normal wear on the chair. This would look great in your living room or office.'
