Welcome to the Doom Bunker

Seriously, why is Glenn Beck on television?

If you haven't been watching lately -- and really, why would you have been -- you've missed out on some seriously crazy apocalyptic fantasies from the strange mind of Fox News' Glenn Beck.

Frankly, it really is ludicrous that this man is given airtime. Say what you will about Fox News generally, but at least there's usually a pretense towards sanity and rationality in its programming. Beck doesn't bother with either.

Really, the only man who can encapsulate all the absurdity that is Beck is, of course, Stephen Colbert. So, with a hat tip to Balloon Juice, check out the two videos below, which are Colbert's parody of the Fox News host. Not only are they a note-perfect imitation, they're hilarious.
