Win Ben Stein's loyalty!

Someone needs to remind Ben Stein which country he is a citizen of and which country is protecting his money. As a Republican once said: You are either with us or against us. Mr. Stein seems to have dual loyalties. Take a look at this comment from Stein in the American Spectator that was picked up by Andrew Sullivan:

""[B]lood will tell, as the old saying goes: [Mark Felt's] posterity is now dragging out his old body and putting it on display to make money. (Have you noticed how Mark Felt looks like one of those old Nazi war criminals they find in Bolivia or Paraguay? That same, haunted, hunted look combined with a glee at what he has managed to get away with so far?) And it gets worse: it's been reported that Mark Felt is at least part Jewish. The reason this is worse is that at the same time that Mark Felt was betraying Richard Nixon, Nixon was saving Eretz Israel. It is a terrifying chapter in betrayal and ingratitude. If he even knows what shame is, I wonder if he felt a moment's shame as he tortured the man who brought security and salvation to the land of so many of his and my fellow Jews. Somehow, as I look at his demented face, I doubt it." - Ben Stein, in the American Spectator.

Translation: It's ok to trample the U.S. Constitution as long as you are helping Israel.
