Random Thought: Kazan's Face in the Crowd

I'm going to start calling Rush Limbaugh "Lonesome Rhodes." It's amazing how similar he is to the character in the 1957 Kazan film, A Face in the Crowd.

In Kazan's film, a hillbilly named Rhodes rises up and becomes the voice of the common man in America. Later on, drunk on his own power, he loses his audience.
