Ben Stein Compares Obama to "the Fuhrer"

Seriously. No out of context bullshit here. Ben Stein was on Glenn Beck's show (two brilliant political minds here, I know) talking about how he didn't really like the idea of Barack Obama giving a big speech in front of 75,000 people. This is what he said:

"Seventy-five-thousand people at an outdoor sports palace. Well, that's something the Fuhrer would have done."

Ummm...yeah...also...David Bowie?

Stein's real gripe really does seem to be about the number of people Obama was talking to. You can't have serious political things to say unless you're talking to a controlled group of 200 people in a "town hall" with pre-written questions. Are these really the arguments they're bringing against Barack Obama at this point?

Here's the clip via Media Matters:

Not to be outdone, Glenn Beck says we're heading for a "Mussolini Presidency."

I can't wrap my head around some of this nonsense anymore.
