Stein and Thomas Must Be Drinking The Same Thing

The line of the fight between civilization and barbarism runs right along the Israel-Lebanon non-border. If it’s not won there, it won’t be long until the front line is right here, and then it will be too late. When George Bush stands up for Israel, he stands up for the whole future of mankind. Yes, he has flaws and has made serious mistakes, but right now, he is a hero for the ages. ~Ben Stein, The American Spectator

“The whole future of mankind”?  Pardon them if the Lebanese don’t feel quite so enthusiastic.  Does anyone take Ben Stein seriously these days?  Anyone?  Anyone?  Bueller?
