I happened to switch my EyeTV to Fox News this afternoon just in time to catch a screenshot of Glenn Beck working his favorite themes, with his favorite subjects pasted on his favorite blackboard:
From top to bottom, we have: Mao Zedong, Vladimir Lenin, Fidel Castro, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, some European guy with a ruffled shirt, Pol Pot, Hugo Chavez, Adolf Hitler (of course), and Vlad the Impaler.
He’s unraveling the threads of history, exposing the connections, showing us how it all works behind the curtain … but even the awesome polymathic mind of Glenn Beck has missed the one fundamental attribute that connects these historical figures. They all — with the possible exception of Vlad — liked pie.
Be that as it may, Glenn concluded his show today by Godwinning himself right out, for the 4,237th time.
It’s hard to believe people aren’t starting to get tired of Beck’s repetitious far right paranoid schtick.
UPDATE at 3/2/10 6:01:12 pm:
Looks like even the ol’ Impaler himself might have indulged in an occasional pie: Traditional Romanian Food and Recipes.
“Poale-n brâu” pies are made either with sweet or salty cheese. The dough is wrapped into an envelope and filled with cheese.
Pie. The universal language.

President Obama likes pie.
Other well-known people who like(d) pie: Joseph Stalin, Karl Marx, and Glenn Beck. Draw your own conclusions.
The Thanksgiving menu at the White House included six kinds of pie. The White House pastry chef has said the first family’s favorite dessert is huckleberry cobbler with caramel ice cream.
