Ben Stein seems like a bright guy, but....


Oh, spare me.
Can anyone even remember now what Nixon did that was so terrible? He ended the war in Vietnam, brought home the POW's, ended the war in the Mideast, opened relations with China, started the first nuclear weapons reduction treaty, saved Eretz Israel's life, started the Environmental Protection Administration. Does anyone remember what he did that was bad?
Ben, pick a better hero.

  2. Ben did come across as a little over the top. I find it hard to get angry (which is what he seems to be) with people who bring a crime to light. He was a successful president, he was a flawed person, he broke the law and he got caught.

    On the other hand, I don't have much respect for people who want to make a hero out of Deep Throat.

    A guy who didn't have the guts to do the right thing (go to Congress or maybe just confront his boss) and seemingly did what he did because of anger over not being promoted.

    Of course, having seen his family, maybe Ben is on to something and Mark Felt is doing his time in hell now.

  3. You're just upset because, as it turns out, the guy really exists. ;-)
