Here's an update from Glenn Beck's Old-Timey Tent Revival this weekend outside Disney, Fl this weekend. The writer likens him to Elmer Gantry in the piece. While wholly appropriate of Beck's style, I'll actually give the nod to Keith Olbermann's take on Beck as being superior. KO refers to Beck as Larry "Lonesome" Rhodes who is the main character in the 1957 Elia Kazan film, A Face In The Crowd.
I've not seen the entire movie, but it's well documented that Andy Griffith gave an Academy award winning performance.
Here's a clip from the film and after watching it, you might well agree, it's probably a better metaphor for the madness that is Glenn Beck.
