Who would have thought Arianna Huffington was capable of this?

On Monday night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC, in a segment with HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher, host Jimmy Kimmel revealed something that is certain to raise eyebrows. He asked Maher, who was accompanied by Huffington at one of the various Oscar parties in Los Angeles on Sunday if his guest was crazy. Maher said she’s only crazy like a rich fox.

“I know she is but there’s many people that are crazy that are richer than I am,” Kimmel said.

But then Kimmel explained the premise which he based his conclusion of this “crazy” declaration – he was felt up by the left-leaning Huffington Post editor-in-chief during an episode of “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” a Comedy Central show he hosted from 1997-2000.

“I’ll tell you why I think she’s crazy – she did something to me once a long time ago that I’ve never told anyone before,” Kimmel said. “But I used to do a game show called ‘Win Ben Stein’s Money,’ and she was on the show as a contestant. She was eliminated. I was standing at the podium and she starts squeezing my ass during the show – repeatedly squeezing it and I didn’t know what to do. I turned bright red. I was like 12-years-old or something at the time and I go, ‘This is a crazy person.  Who would do this?’”

Kimmel doubled down on his claim, saying it was true and admitted that he didn’t mind the contact.

“It’s true, it’s true – I swear, she can deny it all she wants maybe she won’t,” Kimmel said. “I’m not saying I minded it, it was just surprising to me. That’s all.  You don’t get that on a game show so much.”

    Maybe its a simple man/woman thing, or why not spin this into hours of discussion by the talking heads for the hoi-polloi to chew on?? DC has some amazing lapses of journalism.

    She was looking for the itch…she thought he might have it there.

    That’s sexual harrassment. He was at the disadvantage and he is certainly scarred by her actions. It would not be accepted if a man did that to a woman. The man would be vilified and hung out to dry.

    That would ruin sex for months. She’s one gross, ugly woman. Inside and out.

    Somebody please ask Ben Stein to corroborate.

    Hey Jimmy she’d always hanging around with teabaggers like Barney Frank and his boyfriend Herb Moses from Fannie Mae. She couldn’t help herself.

    Please Check out song called teapartiers I can’t hear you at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJfboOindCo

    Here’s a verse

    The real teabaggers are Barnie and the safe school czar
    Your kids aren’t safe in a bus or car
    Jennings might not report it if their molested at a bus station
    lets hope he don’t have Nambla take them on vacation

    Britain will have company as they ration mammograms and cortisone
    The U.S. is now joining them so they won’t be alone
    Bill Ayers his hero and Jarrets slum lord bets
    Mine our Gerald Walpin , Private Long and the Swift Boat vets
    I know him and his czars think this songs not balanced and fare
    We just want nothing to do with that trainwreck Obamacare
