[Update: In case you have missed it (and you don't want to do that, check out the email exchange Jesus' General (aka PatriotBoy) has been having with Dinesh D'Souza. Here's a good one to start you off. Hysterical stuff, makes you question how well wrapped dear D'Souza is!]
Dedalus at Blah3 brings us this regarding Dinesh D'Souza who's had quite a week - and a career - making an utter ass of himself.
What very Deep Thinker says Osama bin Laden is “a quiet, well-mannered, thoughtful, eloquent and deeply religious person”? And who notes that the Ayatollah Khomenei is still “highly regarded for his modest demeanor, frugal lifestyle and soft-spoken manner”? And who thinks the best route for us to take these days is to “should openly ally” with “governments that reflect Muslim interests, not ... Israeli interests”?National disgrace?
Why, it's the comedy stylings of Dinesh D'Souza! He made us laugh on The Colbert Show, but Alan Wolfe's NY Times Book Review piece tosses a turd in his punchbowl, describing his book as boiling down to this:
Dreadful things happened to America on [9/11], but, truth be told, D’Souza is not all that upset by them. America is fighting two wars simultaneously, he argues, a war against terror abroad and a culture war at home. We should be using the former, less important, one to fight the latter, really crucial, one.Somehow, I don't think Wolfe was convinced by the qualities of DeeDee's arguments:
Like his hero Joe McCarthy, he has no sense of shame. He is a childish thinker and writer tackling subjects about which he knows little to make arguments that reek of political extremism. His book is a national disgrace, a sorry example of a publishing culture more concerned with the sensational than the sensible.
Well, not as big a one as our President Bush, that's for certain!
