More on Deep Throat = Ben Stein

benstein.jpgThere’s a part of us that can’t believe we’d pass along information like this, but the argument is so strange that it’s almost compelling.

After (we guess) reading this post about whether Deep Throat could have been Carl Bernstein’s neighbor Ben Stein, a reader sent us this article.

It argues that because Ben Stein is undoubtedly Deep Throat because–get this–the former Nixon speechwriter was sick last month and, it turns out, so was Deep Throat.

Um, newsflash, bucko: Adrian Havill solved this problem two weeks ago: Former President George H.W. Bush is Deep Throat! Please stop sending tips about Deep Throat (unless, of course, you actually know who it is).
