Give Glenn Beck a little credit: Every time you think he can't possibly get any weirder, or go any further over the top, he does. (That's not necessarily a good thing, of course, but still -- the man is apparently capable of more eccentricity than just about anyone else.)

Following up on his big announcement of vague plans that seem to involve maybe, possibly supporting a third party, Beck had a rather interesting idea for his show on Monday: In order to dramatize what he believes is the death of the two major parties, he had people on set building coffins for both of them.

No, seriously.
