Russia's incursion into the Ukraine is really unhinging the wingnuts in a few ways. Some are suddenly in love with Mother Russia, while others just drift off into bizarreoland.

Every day, we watch several hours of Glenn Beck's radio and television programming and, as awful as that is, we do so while giving thanks that we don't actually work for Beck, because then we might be forced to sit through one of his morning meetings where the staff just sits there silently as he goes off on another one of his insane monologues about how the world has collectively gone insane.

"We are going to be remembered," Beck declared yesterday, "as an insane society; as a society that is just totally unhinged, totally disconnected for reality."

In Beck's Morning Meeting he was opining on the relationship between Russia's stocks and their GDP and comparing it to America's.

Here we are sitting with Russia, mocking our president. It's because for the first time I think in my life Russia is closer to the truth than we are on everything. We are so unhinged.

If Russia is closer to the truth than I guess he agrees with Putin and is fine with him trying to take over the entire Baltic region and he's also very happy that Edward Snowden was welcomed there. Then while he was attacking Joe Biden over shotguns or some such nonsense, he said this.

We are going to be remembered as an insane society. As a society that is totally unhinged. Totally disconnected with reality...Eventually our lies and illusions collapse and we all wake up with a hangover.

Yes, your lies have helped make many a shaky Republicans go totally bonkers. I just wish your lies and illusions would finally collapse already. By the way, I guess he forgot when he said this: Glenn Beck Admits He Helped 'Tear The Country Apart' On Fox News

“I remember it as an awful lot of fun and that I made an awful lot of mistakes, and I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language,” Beck said during an interview with Megyn Kelly. “I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart and it's not who we are.”

He continued, “I didn’t realize how really fragile the people were. I thought we were kind of more in it together and now I look back and realize, if we could've talked about the uniting principles instead of just the problems, I think I would look back more fondly.”

Can you help us out?
