"A Mussolini Presidency"
"Ego deficit problems." I'm holding my tongue on this comment.
Oh, and by the way, the economy continues to be hunky dory.
Incidentally, I just became debt-free. It certainly wasn't by following the words of Benjamin Stein.
UPDATED: Not all debt is bad debt. You need a credit history, after all.
UPDATED: Charles Krauthammer - until now I had respect for you. Have you lost your mind?
Am I the only person who thinks we are rather fortunate in this election to have two candidates who at least have some class? Granted, McCain is a big disappointment to me for embracing Bush, plodding down Baghdad streets with armored soldiers while asserting that all is peace, and pandering to the "agents of intolerance" he once had the balls to challenge - but he is still head and shoulders above the rabid dogs like James Dobson who can't accept him, and insist upon embarrasing him. Is it too much to ask that the talking heads in the media can the "terrorist/too old/African mumus/black love child/missing thesis" BS and focus on the issues?
SUFFALUPAGUSDATED: I'm Ben Stein, and I've Erred Financially.
But I have some consolation! Yes, I lost money. But I didn't lose billions the way the top dogs at some banks did.
And neither did most Americans, you twit. (Boy, that's real consolation.)
I didn't borrow tens of billions from my depositors and lose it in subprime mortgages.
Dude, I thought you said there was no subprime mortgage crisis? When did it suddenly become real to you?
I didn't make my stockholders pay me bonuses and options worth hundreds of millions - only to lead my stockholders to ruin.
You didn't ruin any of your financiers? What are the numbers for Expelled again?
How could I have made so many idiotic mistakes? [Um...] How am I ever going to explain myself to my son that his inheritance disappeared?
"Inheritance"? Ben, I thought you said in your book to make your kids pay their way through college and to not give them anything?
How will I ever pay for my livelihood when I'm older and grayer?
I think that's a question a lot of people who didn't grow up with the toys and the privileges that you did are asking, Ben. Are we supposed to feel sorry for you?
