Charles Wilson, jailed last week for threatening to kill a Washington
senator who voted for health care reform, was "under the spell that
Glenn Beck cast...his fears were grown and fostered by Beck's persuasive
personality," wrote a cousin attesting to his character, if not his taste in "pundits". Meanwhile, the chasm grows with a newly brazen Sharron Angle ad by the so-called Faith and Freedom Coalition that minces no words. 

"It's Us versus Them. Big government versus a big belief in faith and freedom." – from the ad, which is less than subtle.
