I didn't hear most of it, because I was working on something else. He said something about us hugging trees, or something...

But then again, we're talking about Ben Stein here... :puke:

3. I hope I can see the Al Franken one.
It just seemed kinda weird listening to Stein say those things, because even though I knew he was a right-wing asshole, I had never heard him say anything political.

5. Well, he is a former Nixon speechwriter...

6. I think Stein and Franken are friends...
I remember they worked together a lot on the old Comedy Central political coverage back in '92, and I think Al mentioned the other week that they're still friends.

As so many of you know, I am an avid Bush fan and a Republican. But I think the best guidance I ever got was from the inauguration speech of Democrat John F. Kennedy in January of 1961.
