Win Ben Stein's Brain

Ben Stein, former Nixon protege, actor and game show host, in a post that you must absolutely read, has these remarkable words to say about Deep Throat, Nixon, and The Washington Post:
So, this is the great boast of the enemies of Richard Nixon, including Mark Felt: they made the conditions necessary for the Cambodian genocide. If there is such a thing as kharma, if there is such a thing as justice in this life of the next, Mark Felt has bought himself the worst future of any man on this earth. And Bob Woodward is right behind him, with Ben Bradlee bringing up the rear. Out of their smug arrogance and contempt, they hatched the worst nightmare imaginable: genocide. I hope they are happy now -- because their future looks pretty bleak to me.

Ah, yes, you see the Washington Post and Deep Throat are directly responsible for the genocide in Cambodia. Is there nothing more logical? I want what Stein is popping.

Also not to be missed, Stein calling JFK a "lying, conniving drug addict." Priceless. Classy.

UPDATE: Rush Limbaugh reads this piece on the air, and then reads again, for emphasis, the excerpt quoted above. I was wondering what that last sentence about "their future" meant, but Rush clears that right up: "By 'their future', of course, he means their future after life." Stunning, and completely batshit crazy.

UPDATE II: Joe Gandelman has much more on this, including questions for Stein about continuity of policy and questions for the very Republican Gerald Ford and Henry Kissinger, who apparently, have no responsibility in the Cambodian genocide.

MUCH LATER UPDATE: Here's the transcript from Limbaugh's website.
"...Meaning their future after life. Had they not brought down Nixon, we wouldn't have lost Vietnam. Had we not brought down Nixon, the Khmer Rouge would not have come to power and murdered two million people in a full-fledged genocide. And not even John Kerry could stop it, ladies and gentlemen, when he was dispatched by Nixon to Cambodia, which he never was, by the way. So many people in this with so many lies, all for the sake of propping up and maintaining a myth about the greatness of investigative journalism."
Even funnier than I remembered.
