It's so nice to see conservative stalwarts like Glenn Beck and Grover Norquist at each others throats, isn't it?

They've been feuding for a while now as Beck has been really going after him using the pretext that he's trying to save the NRA.

Glenn Beck Convinces NRA To Launch Ethics Investigation Into Grover Norquist's 'Muslim Ties'

Glenn Beck Accuses Grover Norquist Of Palling Around With Terrorists

And I think Beck is taking it as far as it can go now since he likened the tax cutting lunatic to an undercover agent working for the Muslim Brotherhood. I kid you not.

He said this, "Grover Norquist is the modern-day version of that KGB handler, if you will, whether he knows it or not."

Not only is Beck trying to discredit Norquist among their peers, he's trying to destroy him completely in the political world.

On his radio program yesterday, as part of his crusade to get right-wing anti-tax activist Grover Norquist removed from the board of the National Rifle Association for supposedly being a front man for the Muslim Brotherhood...

Following the interview, Beck literally begged the NRA members in his audience to vote to remove Norquist from the organization's board, warning that this is the last chance to stop him.

"If this works, his empire really falls apart," Beck said. "If it doesn't, no one will ever touch him and his influence will expand and so will the Muslim Brotherhood, at the highest levels."

Beck then likened Norquist to the protagonists of the television show "The Americans," which is about deep-cover KGB spies in America during the Cold War, which he cited to praise the efforts of Joseph McCarthy.

"If you watch that show 'The Americans,' that happened, that's true,' Beck declared. "Grover Norquist is the modern-day version of that KGB handler, if you will, whether he knows it or not. But the infiltration has happened and he's the doorway to it."

FX's "The Americans" is one of my favorite shows on TV, but I never think about Grover Norquist in that way. It's too icky.

Stop trying to mess it up in my head, Glenn.
