Skip to comments.Disillusionment and Triumph (Vanity Ben Stein rolls over for Al Franken)

And, finally, the most painful discovery of all.
Ben Stein - $1,000. Legendary Ferris Beuhler actor, game show host, and brilliant conservative. Former speech writer for Richard Nixon and columnist for the American Spectator and Yahoo Finance, among other outlets. One of the finest writers around on politics, economics, and culture, as demonstrated in this listing. In particular, he's one the most articulate and persuasive speakers advocating the pro-life stance in the country.
And he's giving money to Al Bleeping Franken? A guy who's never found a liberal position on abortion he didn't like (as shown by the $5,000 contribution he also received from something called Washington Women for Choice.) How in the world can Ben Stein be supporting Al Franken?
Are you sure its the same guy? There are more than Ben Stein’s in the world than just this one.
not sure- going by the post at the blog.
I don’t want to know what weird personal connections they have that explain all of this.
It is very odd... must be a “New York” thing...
...Unless Ben is hoping Frankenfurter will beat another Dim in the primary (who might be stronger and have a better chance to unseat Coleman in the general election).
This needs to be vetted.
here’s the link to the archived post rather than then the entire page:
the above link also only takes you to the page, sorry.
the author claims to have emailed Stein.
His email address:
That certainly looks the part. Yikes
I’m all for Al Franken running. He thinks he’s clever and funny while being painfully neither. He looks like he’s got some chromosomal damage and sounds like a voice coach’s nightmare. He seems to understand larger political issues but comes across as a nag when he speaks about them. GO, AL! GO!
“My father told me there are some things in life that just aren’t funny...and one of those things is Al Franken.”
Ben Stein can spend is own money the way he wants to.
Knowing how extremely frugal he is, it is disturbing to see this contribution, if true.
He seems to put Ben Stein's Money where his mouth is, so his explanation would be interesting.
