Glenn Beck: Plagiarist

I thought I had posted this before, but I couldn't find it. This is Dave Foley (with a brief appearance by Kevin McDonald) of Kids in the Hall in a sketch circa 1990.

One must assume that a young and impressionable Glenn Beck (assuming he wasn't wasted on vicodin and gin at the time) internalized this awesomely paranoid, fear-mongering persona and later regurgitated it as his own.

A few weeks ago, Keith Olbermann had Foley on his show to comment on the sketch and its similarities to Beck's wackadoo persona.
