I’m not sure if any of you watched it, but Ben Stein was just on CNN with Laura D’Andrea Tyson and Wolf Blitzer, and not only defended the budget, but basically threw the last eight years under the bus and then, and this is what blew me away, stated that he agreed with Paul Krugman that there need to be trials for the mismanagement that led to this crisis and basically called for Hank Paulson’s head. Someone’s net worth clearly took a beating. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone as pissed as Ben Stein just was, which is really surprising because there are all sorts of reasons to be pissed off right now.
I’ve been told I have minions now, so if any of you minions have a copy of that or can youtube it, please let me know.

There was more to it than that, but you get the flavor.
