Clearly, February was a peerless month in the history of unhinged rants. Between Charlie Sheen, Glenn Beck, and Muammar Qaddafi, it was difficult just to keep track of who was saying which unintelligible thing at any given time. Really difficult, in fact. To demonstrate just what a struggle it is to distinguish between the mad ramblings of an entertainer, a despot, and a newsman another entertainer, we’ve put together this quiz. If you get them all right, you are some kind of savant.

"I ask you to prepare because your world is about to change overnight."

"They have awoken a sleeping giant. If I'm misunderstood after yesterday then people are worse off than I thought."

"I will plant my flag on this, and I will fall on my sword if I have to!"

"I have no authority stemming from laws or decisions or anything else, I just have moral authority. I only have moral authority."

"If you love with violence and you hate with violence, there's nothing that can be questioned."

"I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans ... to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong."

"I'm a guy that's riddled with flaws and by taking my flaws out and putting it in the refiner's fire and letting the bellows of life heated up, I get the opportunity to pound on my flaws and try to perfect it."

"You want to call me crazy? Go to hell. Call me crazy all you want!"

"They give them pills at night, they put hallucinatory pills in their drinks, their milk, their coffee, their Nescafe"

"This march cannot be stopped by those agents, those rats who move in the dark."

"I will destroy you in the air. I will deploy my ordinance to the ground."

"You need to listen to your parents. If people disobey their parents, they end up destroying the country."

"The rain has begun to fall in the perfect storm. It has begun."

"There's a new sheriff in town. And he has an army of assassins."

"Forget BMWs and iPads and jewelry. Do you want to know what the next luxury item is? Believe it or not, orange juice."
