The Mad Hatters Tea Party.

He is actually getting more unstable with each day that passes. Glenn Beck, enraged by Obama's plan to find a way to legalise 12 million illegal aliens, finds himself pouring liquid from a gas can over the head of a man in his studio and waving a lit match around whilst screaming:

Do you not hear the cries of people saying, "Stop! We would like some sanity in our country for a second. We didn't vote to lose the republic. We didn't vote for any of this stuff. We voted for change." You know what that change was? The change we wanted was for an end to the games.
I love the fact that Beck is calling for "some sanity" whilst he pours liquid from a gas canister over a man's head and thinks anyone would be dumb enough to believe that he "voted for change".

It's a really sad day when Glenn becomes too insane even for the guys at Little Green Footballs, but that's where he now finds himself:

At a “Project 912 Glenn Beck Tea Party,” an unnamed speaker rants about “infiltration by the Communist Party” (a John Birch Society talking point), says that digital cable boxes are “brainwashing machines” planted in our homes by the government, and swears to stop paying taxes. The rant begins at about 1:58.

This is some really deranged stuff, and the audience is eating it up. And notice the comment about evolution at about 5:00:

Woman: [Shouts] “Burn the books!” [applause]

Man: “I don’t think you were serious about that, were you?”

Woman: “I am too.”

Man: “Burn all the books?!”

Woman: “The ones in college, those, those brainwashing books.”

Man: “[laughs] Brainwashing books?”

Woman: “Yes.”

Man: “Which ones are those?”

Woman: “Like, the evolution crap, and, yeah...”

He has called for the people to rise up and take their country back and, through a series of tea parties, the Republicans have revealed themselves as being as utterly unbalanced as Glenn is.

These tea parties resemble nothing so much as a Sarah Palin rally, when it was revealed that the people left supporting the Republican party were a group with a set of beliefs which had nothing to do with reality. They literally believed in things which were demonstrably false.

Seriously, can someone check on Fox News host Glenn Beck? I ask because it certainly looks like the poor guy's finally gone completely 'round the bend, and at the very least someone should do him the favor of checking his molars to make sure that whatever alien radio station his fillings are receiving plays some good music occasionally.
This is the public face of the Republican party. It's ugly and it's utterly insane.

Hat tip to Balloon Juice.

Nunya, That is so funny. I had no idea that teabagging had that meaning.
