Glenn Beck is done with the GOP, and apparently they're never, ever, ever, ever getting back together: "I’ve made my decision—I’m out. I’m out of the Republican Party," Beck said today on his radio show. "I am not a Republican; I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out. I highly recommend—run from the Republican Party. They are not good." He's fed up with leadership's failure to gut ObamaCare or take on illegal immigration, notes Politico.

"They set us up," he continued. "Enough is enough. They’re torpedoing the Constitution and they’re doing it knowingly. They’re taking on people like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and they are torpedoing them. Knowingly. Four years ago, I said work from the inside: Let’s change it. Let’s get new guys in there. It’s too late." It's not the only thing Beck wants to quit, notes Salon: He last week threatened to turn in his NRA card over Grover Norquist's rumored ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. (Beck last made headlines discussing his health issues.)
