Ben Stein, like Larry Kudlow, used to be a respectable free market enthusiast as far as we know.
Now he’s turned into a frothing-at-the-mouth interventionist.
Witness this exchange the faux conservative had with Fox’s Neil Cavuto:
I wonder if Ben Stein’s money happens to be invested in the companies Ben Stein wants bailed out.
Stein looked foolish reciting an ahistorical account of the Great Depression, peppered with his emotional outbursts. Shame on him.
