Glenn Beck explains American politics with "The Wizard of Oz," dolls and really weird voices

Glenn Beck did a very Glenn Beck thing on Wednesday

Glenn Beck has terrible politics and really bad ideas about how the world works, but he's really, really good at putting on a show. Like that one time he interviewed himself? Or that other time he did that thing with the moon? Or how he has his own brand of jeans? Or all of the bow ties and cardigans all the time? So much pizazz happening with Glenn Beck.

On Wednesday, Beck used his talent for the dramatic, "The Wizard of Oz," a bunch of dolls and some really weird voices (one of which sounds strikingly similar to Cartman from "South Park") to explain American politics.

The video is long, so allow me to summarize: The American people are Dorothy, Mitch McConnell is the Good Witch of the North, the government is the Wicked Witch of the West and Lindsey Graham, John McCain and John Boehner are the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, respectively.

Oh, and Glenn Beck's giant ego is the fuel for the hot air balloon that the Wizard travels to Oz in, I am pretty sure but that is just my best guess.
