Glenn Beck is Saruman in this one.

So, you thought all the noise was just? 
You know that scene in the second Lord of the Rings movie where Saruman goes out onto the balcony of his tower with Grima and looks out over his massive army of orcs that he has created to conquer Middle-earth, and if you look closely you can see Grima shed a single tear, but it's not clear whether he is overcome with awe, or has just realized he helped destroy the human race?

Well, that was pretty much this weekend in Washington when Glenn Beck came to town for his public anger conclave/suburban block party, where he and a hundred thousand (after CGI)  friends appropriated the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech to Take Back America for conservative anger bears.  If Sarah Palin shed a tear, it was for the first reason.

Highlights and photos after the jump, hooray!
