|George Soros Plans to Overthrow America|
I guess to many Americans, Glen Beck is a very odd public figure, to most non-Americans he is both fascinating, utterly bizarre and quite scary. He reminds me a bit of characters in James Ellroy's books - particularly the Underworld USA trilogy. Of course the fictional characters like Wayne Tredow Sr are very ugly; Tredow is a 1950's right-wing pamphleteer, Bircher and KKK-supporter - but then again the fictional characters didn't have national TV shows. When I read the New Yorker piece on Beck last month, it all made sense.
