It seems Glenn Beck is not buying what the Obama administration is selling on Obamacare enrollment.

In a particularly memorable rant on his radio show, during which he derides President Barack Obama as “sociopathic,” Beck ripped the “rat bastards” in the media who uncritically reported on Obamacare’s 7 million enrollees.

“This is complete bogus. This is a complete bogus fairy tale. This is completely made up. This is nonsensical,” Beck said in a clip pulled by Right Wing Watch. “The emperor has no clothes. And everyone in the press, you rat bastards, every single one of you know what he’s saying isn’t true. You know it. You know it.”

Beck has company in his disbelief: The purveyor of Unskewed Polls and Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY).
