Ben Stein's Money

Who'da thunk Ben Stein, most recently seen in the awful Expelled, has a soul?

Stein now finds himself fighting a dragon he's helped to feed. To his credit, he's fought this battle before, speaking out against tax cuts for the wealthy despite, I'm sure, being pretty wealthy himself, but people like Stein, and Kathleen Parker, and Powell, and Scott McClellan, and so on -- what do they expect? They've been watching these sorts of things play out for years, often taking part in them themselves, and now when the Crazy Train that is modern conservatism has worked up a full head of crazy steam and is heading for a cliff, welp, there are going to be some cuts and bruises and broken bones after they jump off.
