Ben Stein vs. The Maid

by Jonah Goldberg

This is not Ben Stein’s greatest moment.

Oh, and this is a small point, but can people — Stein, Levy — stop referring to Strauss-Kahn as one of the most “recognizable people on the planet”? I had no idea what the guy looked like until this story broke and he’s still sufficiently un-iconic that he could walk past me in the next ten minutes and I might not recognize him. If you think the head of the IMF is one of the most recognizable people in the world, you should probably revise that to “your world” — because it’s not true in mine.

The one and only.
