Thanks for printing this. Because of this article, I have now lost all respect I once had for Ben Stein. This will save me a lot of time that would otherwise have been wasted reading future Special Reports from him.
With regard to the Ben Stein article, “Hypocrisy, Democrat Style,” I would like to know what credentials Mr. Stein can produce to justify his expertise with the gay community. I cite this comment from his “special report”:
“I hope it won’t come as a surprise to anyone that a big part of male homosexual behavior is interest in young boys.”
Then Mr. Stein goes on to name the source of his expertise: observing the persons in his video store renting a moving entitled: “Endless Summer.” That alone is enough to completely discredit the comment. But it begs the question: What kind of logic makes you think that the observance of what person rents which movie at a video store is a reasonable way to judge people? You really shouldn’t embarrass yourself like that, Ben.
Let me rephrase your comment in a way that is not only more accurate, but more enlightened and intelligent:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
