Glenn Beck Delivers Weird Train Rant

See if you can make sense of this

There are mixed metaphors, there are tortured metaphors, and then there's the heaping pile of crazy Glenn Beck unloads in this clip Mediate snagged from last night's show. OK, let's see if we've got this straight. Europe is on a (metaphorical) socialist train track that leads to Nazi-ism and Communism, which used (not metaphorical) trains to take people to Gulags and concentration camps, while the US used its (metaphorical) free market tracks to create the light bulb and Martin Luther King? That is until Obama and the progressives threw the switch (or something).

Go ahead, watch the video, see if you can make heads or tails of it. We'll agree with Beck on one point at least: “This is the worst television ever done,” he marvels before launching into his rant. “We're doing it every day, congratulations.” (More Glenn Beck stories.)
