A note on Stein: He used to teach at UC Santa Cruz and was known/referred/thought of as a fascist. In response, a group of students broke into his classroom and arranged all the desks into the shape of a swastika. He quit in response.
I don't get how all these people are surprised because Ben Stein was on a show with talentless hack Jimmy Kimmel. Guys, being on a quiz show where you prove that you like trivia doesn't make you a smart, nice guy. Come on.
