WASHINGTON (Ucs News) — Ben Stein says he knows how Sen. John McCain can win in November: hire a real lying scum bag like Karl Rove. Ben Stein tells Ucs News Editor in Chief Kamal El-din that John McCain is running the “most pathetic campaign” he’s ever seen and it’s time to call in the slime machine.
At a time when McCain is seeking to distance himself from President Bush, Stein argues McCain needs to enlist Bush’s chief political hit man in order to defeat Sen. Barack Obama. According to Stein it’s time for McCain to start trashing Obama. Stein commented “We need to defend the Bush legacy of corruption and incompetence, it’s a legacy Republicans should be proud of.”
“I don’t discount the possibility that some really smart person at the McCain campaign might go over to Karl Rove, and say ‘We will offer you all the kingdoms of the world if you will come and guide our campaign,’ ” a hopeful-sounding Stein said in a recent interview.
Stein is not unlike many Hollywood types in that he speaks his mind when it comes to politics. But what separates him from the pack is his wing nut views and Republican party affiliation. Stein is an actor and an author, but he is also an economist, columnist and, yes, a pathological liar. lawyer. And he is a Republican, making him a minority in Tinseltown political circles.
From Stein’s perspective, McCain has been running an uninspiring campaign — one that lacks a coherent message. “If you are lacking a message you need to launch a full on slime attack and Karl Rove is the man.”
