Glenn Beck just had Rush Limbaugh on his TV show, and the World Net Daily headline captures Beck's message succinctly: "Glenn Beck's Fear of Obama: Seize Power Overnight."

Oh, and did you know that Obama is building an Alinskyesque paramilitary force of Marxist CEOs? Or one CEO, at least.

Here's Beck (clip below):

Rush, tomorrow on this program I'm going to lay out the case of the army they are building right underneath our own, our nose, an army that he spoke about on the campaign trail, and if you watch what could only be called the administration's organ -- anything involved with GE or NBC -- you've got [GE CEO] Jeffrey Immelt on the board of the Federal Reserve, you have him in the Oval Office consulting not only on health care, but the financial situation, and they are an organ.

If you watch MSNBC, I contend that you will see the future because they are laying the ground for a horrible event that will be -- is what they're laying the ground for, anything from the right, there's some awful event and I fear this government, this administration has so much framework already prepared, that they will seize power overnight before anybody even gives it a second thought.

(Immelt, by the way, has been a director of the Fed since January 2006.)

Even Limbaugh doesn't buy the seize-power-overnight line:

Well, I think -- I think because of what you're doing with your television show, your radio show, what we're all doing, I don't think they're going to be able to seize it overnight without anybody knowing about it.

Ah, but this is a subtle disagreement: We know Barack Obama is hell-bent on destroying the country, but how exactly? Limbaugh has a different vision:

"Look at what they're doing to the U.S. economy," he said. "Anybody with a sense of economic literacy would know this is not how you create jobs. You do not rebuild the private sector. This is being done on purpose. All of these disasters are exactly what Obama wants. The more crises, the better. The more opportunity for government to say, 'Let us in and fix the problem.'"

It's Marxist CEO fascism! No, it's political Munchausen's by proxy! Marxist CEO fascism! Political Munchausen's by proxy!

Who said there's no diversity of opinion on the right?

By the way, here's Limbaugh expressing skepticism regarding the Obama shock troops. He's referring to the current health care wars:

The Obama army is not showing up with any passion for Obama's issue.

Well, he got that right -- I'll give him credit for that. Limbaugh is evil and frequently paranoid, but he's much less stupid and delusional than Beck.


Another choice Beck moment from last night -- a question he asked in an interview with Karl Rove:

Do you agree that there is some sort of -- the Republic is being used as a host right now, and some other virus is going in and eating that host, and at some point it will be what's remaining?

Wow. Just wow.
