Glenn Beck plays the crying game, from multiple perspectives:
Keith Olbermann is in the habit of calling Glenn "Lonesome Rhodes." (For those unfamiliar, "Lonesome" is an Arkansas hayseed who rises to TV talk-show fame and soon becomes a megalomaniac, played superbly by Andy Griffith in A Face in the Crowd (1957).)
I'm a bit worried that he's more like a fascist version of psycho TV anchorman Howard Beale in Network (1976). Beck has made the comparison himself. I'm not making it in any flattering manner. Is he or ain't he nuts? And which way is he more dangerous? We report. You decide.
