They just don't make them any crazier than Glenn Beck:

Transcript (new line signals edit point):

   What's in this legislation? The end of America as you know it, I believe.

   We are taking about massive, sweeping change. American's showed up by the hundreds of thousands at various tea parties to demand the opposite of this: stop spending money. But look at these bills. Look at this. This is a fundamental transformation of America.

   Massive changes to the way you live your life. The Senate plans to pass this mess before Christmas.

   I don't want to believe the things I believe about what's happening in Washington, but we have a President who has surrounded himself not with free-market system lovers. These are people that don't want to increase America's prosperity, they are spending us into oblivion for their own purposes.

   Obama is trying to overwhelm the system right now with massive new government takeover programs. I mean look at these bills. This is just for health care. Stimulus. This is insanity.

   Obama is insisting on this all at once. His entire transformation America package all with twelve months of his administration.

   We are talking here America about the end of our way of life.

   This is not some wild conspiracy tale.

   They already control our banks.

   They control the auto industry.

   Control the temperature inside of your home.

   Control of one-sixth of the economy.

   Taking over the internet in the name of neutrality.

   They are moving at the speed of light and we've got to get up off of our couches and get into their offices.

   If we don't stop this insanity now, they will fundamentally transform America. It must end. You must make a choice. This, or this.

Well, Beck's got one thing right. This is insane.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
