[H/t Heather]

Stephen Colbert seems to have noticed the same thing we have -- Glenn Beck's new Fox show is one nutty batch of granola -- particularly the episode last week where he had his audience peering deeply into his eyes.

Colbert decides that what America really needs is for the viewing audience to peer deeply into ... well, you have to watch and see.

And speaking of Beck's wingnuttery flittering off into uncharted regions, he nearly created one of those right-wing black holes again yesterday by having Jonah Goldberg, still hawking Liberal Fascism a year later, appear on the show, so they could talk about how Obama is pushing America into socialism with much more nefarious ends in mind.

I think we may be witnessing one of those spectacular media flameouts in the making. Stay tuned ...

Can you help us out?
