Alternative Title: Glenn Beck descends further into paranoid delusion.

BECK: Gasoline Brazil. Now why am I telling you about this? Have you heard of another word? Soros. George Soros. I do have a bulletproof car, George. I just want you to know.

George Soros -- I'm going to show you this tonight. I'm going to spend an hour on this. I want you to DVD, write down, take notes, look into this. We're going to be talking a little bit about this in the next few days. This is -- I like to call it the circle of life, as it is now understood in America.

As a relative newcomer to the crazy that is the far right wing, I do not now, nor am I likely to ever understand the obsession they have with George Soros.

The right wing non-profit money machine outspends progressive non-profits by amounts in the billions. What Soros spends in a year on American politics is a big zero. Yet FreedomWorks grinds more tea in our face every day with full-throated (and walleted) support from the right.

There was a time in this country where people as paranoid and self-focused as Glenn Beck were placed in a room with padding and round corners until the meds took hold.

Now they go on national television. Rupert Murdoch's epitaph should read "He mainstreamed crazy."
