Sad Little Sociopath: Not Even Glenn Beck's Tears Are Real

Check this out (h/t Progressive Nation). Remember this Glenn Beck image from GQ?

MisterMovies has the video of that photo-shoot. Let's just say the tears are fake, or more precisely, the emotion behind the tears is:
Well here we have Glenn Beck showing hos those crocodile tears come on cue. He uses VICKS under his eyes! Such sincerity. Oh did we know Beck was a MORMON? (A moron also)

Gawker has more on how this shoot came to be:
As we noted yesterday, Beck blasted photographer Jill Greenberg last year as a left-wing "nut job" who "terrorizes children" because she made fun of John McCain after shooting his portrait for the cover of Atlantic and once shot an infamous series of crying toddlers. When GQ assigned Greenberg to shoot a portrait of Beck to accompany a Q-and-A in its July issue, Beck naturally put aside his concerns and did whatever Greenberg asked him to do because he doesn't care about anything but getting people to look at pictures of him. Greenberg has no doubt that Beck knew exactly who he was crying for.

"He and his public relations people, at the shoot, said they love my work and had checked out my website," Greenberg told Gawker. "I believe they Googled me, like most of my subjects' PR people do. He was super nice on set."

"The crying was my idea, and Glenn was cool with trying it," Greenberg says. "We used mentholated balm to make his eyes tear up naturally. From then on it was acting on his part. He had fun with it and was a great sport."
