Ben Stein is one off-the-wall cat. Every once in a while he'll say something that makes sense just to fool you, but then he goes off the deep end with the best of the Teabirchers. Stein was on Fox News' America's News HQ Sunday, and he dropped a race bomb that would be hysterical if it wasn't so twisted.

What the White House is trying to do is racialize all politics and their especially trying to tell the Africa-American voter that the GOP is against letting them have a chance at a good life in this economy, and that’s just a complete lie," he said. "I watch with fascination — with incredible fascination — all the stories about how the Democratic politicians, especially Hillary, are trying to whip up the African-American vote and say, ‘Oh the Republicans have policies against black people in terms of the economy.' But there are no such policies."

"It’s all a way to racialize voting in this country," Stein continued. "This president is the most racist president there has ever been in America. He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans."

As a rule of thumb, whenever a conservative tries to make a point about racism in America that defends the GOP, you should either ignore them, laugh at them, call them on their lies or just put your fingers in your ears and yell, "la-la-la-la-la."

Any person who follows politics knows about the Southern Strategy that Reagan and Nixon used and which was later honed to perfection by the late Lee Atwater. So whenever Democrats point out how racist the GOP and the Tea Party are, their new hole card is to call that racism. Oye. My head hurts.

And let us never forget what kind of letch "mad crush" Ben Stein is:

Ben Stein wrote in a bizarre magazine column last month that he’s still like a hormone-crazed teen who gets “mad crushes” on every beautiful woman he meets.

But one woman targeted by the supposedly harmless Stein told Page Six on Monday that the 69-year-old married grandfather is nothing but a manipulative leech who gave her money — and then begged to “touch” her even though she’s pregnant.

Tanya Ma, a 24-year-old pregnant performance artist, said she contacted Page Six to tell her story because she doesn’t “want him to continue to do this to women.”

“It’s much more than sexting, cyber-escorting or being a sugar daddy — it’s unhealthy and toxic behavior that needs to be exposed,” insisted Ma, who lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
