(Newser) – Glenn Beck outdid himself yesterday with a high-strung rant about health care reform. He told his viewers to “be afraid” because Obama is “remaking” America “into a place that’s a whole lot crappier. Kind of a hybrid between France and Venezuela.” He then cackled like a witch to mock Nancy Pelosi, decrying her plan to tax millionaires like, well, Glenn Beck.

He also mocked Obama’s promises to pay for health care with government savings. “The government and savings,” he marveled. “Yeah, like baseball, apple pie, and big Mexican hats. They don’t go together!” Obama, he said, was “taking the beacon of freedom and turning it into an apologetic, hey, what can you do for me, wannabe European, spread the wealth, socialist wonderland.”
