Jared Loughner: The Sad Smile of a Psycho

Categories: Featured

It was plastered on the face of Arizona wacko Jared Loughner as he appeared before a federal judge for the slaying of six people and the attempted slaughter of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

But where had I seen that look before?

That very same nervy, sick, entitled, arrogant smirk?

On Nick Nolte? Mel Gibson? Howdy Doody?

No, I know! It was Norman Bates in Psycho!

But of course Norman had a lot more charm and was kind of cute, actually. No comparison!

I'll tell you who I immediately thought of when I saw this creepy mugshot: He looks exactly like Dawn Davenport in "Female Trouble,," just before she went to the electric chair! Tell me if I'm wrong! (see comparison here: http://s29.photobucket.com/alb...¤t=63c395a4.jpg )

The bastard love child of Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. Moron meets Mormon.

To me, he looks more like Wayne Gacey, the clown serial killer.

Norman Bates has become a beloved American icon. Hitchcock always had a way of making you sympathize with his villains.

Tony Perkins, really kuh-yute! This asshole, no. His parents must feel so guilty and ashamed that their devil spawn did this. Wonder if they were weird to raise such a murderous crazy as this. It wasn't even like he was lost to them, he still lived in their house. Also the crazy from Portugal who killed and mutilated his sugar daddy in NYC. They may be crazed, but it's really no excuse.

Better comparison here: http://s29.photobucket.com/alb...¤t=3716cc5d.jpg I watched "Female Trouble" last night once again...it's pretty scary how this guy and Dawn look so much alike....and both meet their fate (most likely) on death row for shooting a group of strangers...and were seemingly determined to achieve fame through crime. Although this film was viewed as an absurd concept when it came out, in this ludicrous era of "fame-at-any-cost," he can now be seen as something of a prognosticator.
