GLENN: So voter intimidation at polling places in Philadelphia, who is intimidating who, Stu? Which one, which side is intimidating the other side in Philadelphia?
STU: Well, just going by history, we obviously know that Republicans beat Democrats on their way to the polls. It's got to be that.
GLENN: My best friend Pat from KSEV in Houston.
GRAY: Houston, yeah. Houston.
GLENN: Yea, I know that. In Houston, Texas.
GLENN: I'm just wondering if you are still in Houston or if you've gotten a baseball bat and you were in Philadelphia.
GRAY: I was just leaving. Except I understand that with over six precincts across the country reporting now and a total of four electoral votes counted already and MSNBC is now reporting a landslide victory for Barack Obama. Apparently Chris Matthews has had so much blood rushed to his extremities, so much tingling going on that he passed out and lapsed into a coma and is being rushed in for treatment right now.
GLENN: So it's good news.
GRAY: Yeah, good news. They are recommending that the GOP just save the carbon emissions now and just stay home. Don't even bother. It's over. So I don't know that I'll even go to Philadelphia.
GRAY: What's the point?
GLENN: You could beat people up that you disagree with or are different than you.
GRAY: Well, that's a good point. I always enjoy that.
GLENN: I know. You've always said, hey, let's just go for the sport.
GRAY: Right. And then I could go up a little bit further north to Newfoundland and just club baby seals for fun.
GLENN: Well, there's got to be some children that you could starve along the way.
GRAY: I'm sure of that. I starve my own children when there's no others that I see in sight. So I'm pretty used to it.
GLENN: I tell you what, just so we really have fulfilled everything we need to do, how about I starve your children and you starve my children.
GLENN: Because we're supposed to care about our own children.
GRAY: Right, that's true.
GLENN: But not anybody else's children.
GRAY: There you go. It's a good plan.
GLENN: That is really good.
GRAY: So what is your feeling at this point? Do you think it's as ugly as people are saying on the Internet that these, "Oh, probably already over 300 electoral votes. He's going to win in a landslide."
GLENN: I don't know. I really don't.
GRAY: McCain will be lucky enough to win a city, let alone a county, state or anything else. He won't win a precinct.
GLENN: This is the last push of the media to be able to suppress the vote.
GRAY: It is. And need I remind you, this happened in 2004. By 4:00 in the afternoon it was either 3:00 or 4:00 Central time.
GLENN: That's right. It was over.
GRAY: It was over. John Kerry was the victor. And so, you know --
GLENN: This one, though, I just think is -- I don't know. I think this one's different. I mean, I think that Barack Obama, he is truly the Messiah for so many people, and there will be people that will walk through a wall of fire for this guy.
GRAY: Did you hear the Rangel speech?
GLENN: Oh, jeez.
GRAY: Oh, good gosh. I wonder if I could play this on my little headphones.
GLENN: What did he say?
GRAY: Hang on a second. Let me see if I could --
GLENN: If you just tell us what it is, I'm sure we can find it.
GRAY: Maybe actually play his words. Can you hear that okay?
VOICE: He has been able to bring to us one of the greatest Presidents we will ever see, Barack Obama. Elect Barack Obama. Who is the next President? Barack Obama. Who is our hero? Barack Obama. Who is going to lead us out of poverty? Barack Obama. Who is going to save the United States of America? Barack Obama. Who is going to save the entire world? Barack Obama. And who do we love? Barack Obama. God bless.
GLENN: Holy cow.
GRAY: Does that sound like one of our joke bits? Does that sound like -- they really believe he is the Messiah. He is going to save the entire world! Are you mad?
GLENN: See, this is why -- I mean, Pat, you and I have talked about it for a while. I am truly, truly frightened, for good reason. I mean, I'm not a, you know, a fraidy cat. I mean, I am truly concerned in this country that we are moving towards fascism.
GRAY: Yeah, yeah.
GLENN: And it's because of things like this. And I don't even think that it's necessarily Barack Obama. You know, it is this left and leftist movement.
GLENN: This is what the Progressives have wanted. This is -- you know, it's weird. It's weird, Pat. I just believe that, you know, you follow your gut, you follow the promptings of, you know, whatever you want to call it, the great spirit in the sky, and he will lead you into knowledge of freedom and opportunity. And I just feel like -- you know, it's not a coincidence that I have been really so focused on Woodrow Wilson. This is the time that Woodrow Wilson has planted the seeds for it. This is the kind of fascism, socialism, the kind of, you know, change America -- the words that Barack Obama spoke about the Constitution.
GRAY: Oh, man.
GLENN: Rang so deeply with me because I know the seed. I know where it came from, and I know what he was trying to do. Woodrow Wilson truly believed that the state could never be anything but benevolent, and it was always, you couldn't have a fascist dictator because if the people in America voted for fascism, it would be the will of the people. I mean, it's just upside down. And we see this stuff and I just don't know how people don't put it together.
GRAY: And I don't understand how nobody's even asked him to clarify. What is this 250,000 person civilian force that's going to be just as strong, just as powerful and just as well funded as the U.S. military?
GLENN: How do you have something as well funded as the military?
GRAY: And how is it something benevolent? Tell me what they are going to -- is this something that's going to crash on the freeway?
GLENN: Again, again you have a -- when he says you have to stop depending on our military and have a 250,000 civilian force, you know, you look at that kind of stuff -- again I go back to World War I under Woodrow Wilson with the Justice Department. There's an ad, I just, I've got to find this ad and see if we can post it tonight on the Insider broadcast. There's this ad that came out of, I don't even remember what it was, Look magazine or something, and it was from the Justice Department. If you hear someone speaking out against this administration or this country, if you hear someone saying that what the direction we're going is wrong, call and report them with the Justice Department. Your name will be withheld.
GRAY: Oh, wow.
GLENN: I mean, it's incredible. And we're headed down the same path. And Bush laid the groundwork for it.
GRAY: Yes, he did. Yes, he did. He's laid the groundwork for all these people not to question and not to ask and not to wonder what kind of change Barack Obama's talking about and it's okay with them because he's just different. It's okay. They don't care what it is. It's just different than Bush.
GLENN: Oh, it's very different.
GRAY: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: It's very different and it's not just the people. You know, here's another strange fact. You can't have the revolution that you wanted to have. You remember after Clinton got in, he had two years and then the Republicans came in and there was that Republican revolution. You ain't got that this time around because most of the people that are going to have their seats up next time around are Republicans. So you are not -- you don't have the chance to flip everything over and take control of congress in two years because they are Republicans that are running, you know? You've got four years of whatever we do tonight, you four years of it, gang.
GRAY: And however bad things do get if they do get bad under Barack Obama, you still believe Bush anyway. Even if there were seats up for grabs, Republicans won't get them because the American people will buy in that this is still Bush's fault, this is still his mess, it's deeper, it's broader than anything we even imagine and it's going to take us longer to clean up.
GLENN: Oh, the history books are already being written about Obama. I mean, you know, it just took UCLA into last week to finally do a study that said the FDR administration extended, extended the Depression by seven years. Why are we getting this now?
GLENN: Why are we getting this now? We've all grown up hearing that FDR was the savior, that the New Deal was the right thing. We have been indoctrinated with that. Well, now it's too late. Now UCLA comes out with a study that says he extended it, the New Deal extended it by seven years? That makes no sense that this would come out now. And now they do it and now it's too late, and people are looking -- John Kerry has already said he wants a new New Deal, and we're going to get one, gang. Nancy Pelosi and the people in the House, they are already talking now about a $500 billion stimulus package, a $500 billion stimulus package. And let me tell you something. You ain't getting any of those dollars. You are not getting a single one of those dollars. They are going to be going to people who do not pay taxes, unless you count the FICA that they pay, unless you count Social Security. So we're going to take the money from Social Security and give it away. That's the idea. "Oh, well, they don't have to pay their Social Security taxes." Oh, well, that makes a lot of sense.
