Just wonderful…

A wonderful example of the fiskative arts by Jeff Dorchen:

You wouldn’t think Ben Stein could sink any lower. Here’s an apologist for Richard Nixon, the author (ostensibly) of a book (or rather an Ann Coulter-style wad of airport toilet paper) on how liberals are more dangerous to America than terrorists, a man who has espoused the belief that the amount of assets one dies with is a direct indication of one’s value to society – here is a mind so mediocre that he regularly lost battles of wits against MTV game show contestants – you wouldn’t think a track record like that would leave room for further ethical and intellectual failure. But Ben Stein is a man of great determination. He is not content to rest on his laurels, or in his case to let such hideous, thorny laurels rest on him, though they threaten to crush him with the weight of their shamefulness.

Jeff Dorchen rules. I bow before his amazing fiskeriness.
