If only the media worked like Usenet

Media Matters – Stein on Obama’s convention speech: “Seventy-five-thousand people at an outdoor sports palace, well, that’s something the Fuehrer would have done”.

Summary: On Glenn Beck, Ben Stein, while discussing Sen. Barack Obama's plan to deliver his speech accepting the Democratic presidential nomination at Denver's Invesco Field, stated that he did not "like the idea of Senator Obama giving his acceptance speech in front of 75,000 wildly cheering people." Stein further stated: "Seventy-five-thousand people at an outdoor sports palace, well, that's something the Fuehrer would have done."

If only the media ran like usenet of old… Because at this point, having made the inevitable Nazi reference, everyone would just add Ben Stein to their ignore file and that would be the last we would hear of his drivel. (I’m not going to call the ignore file by its technical name, because ignorant people might think it is a threat of some sort.)
