How many ways can Glenn Beck deliver the same crazy rant?

I have been busy lately so I haven't watched Glenn Beck's Fox tv show much over the last couple of months (thankfully), but I did happen to catch the show on Monday. And its like no time passed at all. Beck continues to repeat what he has said before .... over and over and over again.

He cites the same couple of audio clips; posits the same absurd, elaborate, Beautiful Mind meets the Da Vinci Code style conspiracies; makes the same McCarthyist charges; tosses out the same loaded buzzwords; and presents the same general message: "progressives" are totalitarian monsters secretly plotting to destroy America, and soon.

Someone needs to create the Beck/progressive equivalent of DDT Ban Myth Bingo where you can go ahead and check off a box everytime Beck mentions Alinsky, Soros, ACORN, Marxists, "fundamentally transform", etc.

During Monday's program Beck was ranting about ACORN and George Soros, something about Al Franken (stealing elections?), and the supposed Chairman Mao lovers in the White House. That the "manifesto" of "progressives" is to steal elections just like Saul Alinsky taught them to. That the White House is full of radicals and revolutionaries who admire Che, Marx, and Castro. Etc.

This was all leading up to Beck's teaser for his latest propaganda scare video "Live Free or Die," in which he has apparently attempted to up the ante of craziness from his last ridiculous propaganda video about the same imaginary subject. Check out the teaser

Really, I'm at a point where I'm not sure what to say to people who don't consider this as self-evidently insane. Consider that it has the same production value as Frank's "Scrooge" trailer from Scrooged.

Acid rain.
Drug addiction.
International terrorism.
Freeway killers.
Now, more than ever.....we must remember the true meaning of Christmas.
Don't miss Charles Dickens' immortal classic, "Scrooge",
Your life might just depend on it.

Do most liberals endorse Che?
