Glenn Beck seems to be a cinephile.  

A direct quote from him when he was on a chalkboard rant:

It is confusing — I know I probably look like Russell Crowe from "A Beautiful Mind" trying to lay it all out for you.

And this from his twitter profile:  

Sometimes I feel like i am living a dream, other times like I am in a Hitchcock film but when I am with Tania and the kids, I feel happy and whole.

So here is a nice game, for cinephiles against Beck!

Which Hitchcock villain is Beck most like?

My first thought was Claude Rains in Notorious - his smarmy and sinister Nazi spy seemed to fit the bill -

but Rains radiates far too much suavity and intellect to correspond to Beck.  

Then I thought perhaps Norman Lloyd from Saboteur - since this villain sneakily does damage to America while getting everyone to focus their attention to someone else (Bob Cummings in the movie, Van Jones and ACORN in Beck's case)

But after this incident yesterday, I am afraid I have to alter my choice:

Anyone who is willing to subject "little frogs" to this kind of torture must occupy the villainous marquee with this guy:

They even smile alike!

Your thoughts?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
