I thought I was listening to some sort of parody when I first heard this clip. As it turns out, it's from Glenn Beck's joke of a radio show and it's some of the funniest stuff I've ever heard.

Beck is speaking to a woman who called into his radio show and challenged him on his stance on health care reform. Things build, and continue to get heated until about the 3:16 mark when he has a thrombo when the caller really puts the screws to him:

"Kathy, (violently screaming) GET OFF MY PHONE! GET OFF MY PHONE YOU LITTLE PINHEAD!! I DON'T CARE? YOOOOU PEOPLE DON'T CARE ABOUT THE TRILLIONS...(high-pitched squealing) GET OFF MY PHONE!!"

Wow. And he wonders why nobody takes him seriously.

Can you help us out?
