Melodramatic Horseshit

Glenn Beck doing his best Barry Champlain impression:

In this clip, he likens the public option to Nazi eugenics and suggests that the government will be empowered to decide who lives and who dies. You know, like they do with the VA, Medicare and Medicaid right now. Medicare recipients being turned away from treatment because -- oh wait, that's the private health insurance companies who are doing that. Sorry.

Also, Glenn Beck, you googly-eyed hack you, people CAN sue the federal government. It happens every day! Just look! Lying maniac.

Adding... Just to clarify, Beck's tone of voice and delivery -- not necessarily the specific content of the rant -- is a knock-off of Eric Bogosian's Barry Champlain character from Talk Radio. I hope Beck is paying royalties to Bogosian.
