He just plays a normal guy on TV

Apparently, genial game show host Ben Stein is in reality a complete loon.

Another fallen TV hero. Who'd of thunk it that the wisecracking host of "Win Ben Stein's Money" is actually a right-wing nutcase. I knew he used to write speeches for Richard Nixon, but hey, who hasn't? Next thing you know, we'll learn that Big Bird actually is an ex-con who was put away for pecking kids' eyes out or something.

  • Stein was running Google Ads for "Expelled", which is where I first found out about the film. When I clicked through to the film's website, I couldn't really figure out if it was a movie making fun of the Intelligent Design movement, or if he actually did believe that dreck. Once I realized it was the latter, it just made me very sad.

    Kind of the same thing as my guilty pleasure of watching King of Queens before bedtime. Once I found out that the wife on the show was a Scientologist, it kind of took all the fun out of watching.
