What the hell is this rally about?

I was looking for the right words to say about the latest outburst of bloated Glenn Beck stupidity, but as usual, Jon Stewart found them first:

Glenn Beck’s StupaPalooser

And frankly, even though — or perhaps because — Stewart hits the mark with all of the points he makes, I still have no idea with this rally is about.  Martin Luther King was a real leader with a real cause.  Glenn Beck seems to be playing a leader on TV for fun and profit.  His causes are apocalyptic fantasies born of his own rhetoric.  The only trouble is that a lot of people appear to be stupid enough, (or at least the line between reality and fantasy has become blurred enough), that they are following him.
