Ah, it’s good to see that my old pal Dinesh D’Souza is driving public debate again. It’s been far too long. So now we have “Obama is a Mau-Mau, and I mean that in a totally non-racist way” to go long with “Al-Qaeda was right to attack America and its moral decadence,” “what do blacks owe America for the abolition of slavery,” and, from way back in the day, “listening to Jerry Falwell, one gets the sense that something is right about America after all.” Well done, DD!
I know, when people think of me v. foaming wingnut, they tend to think first of David Horowitz. But D’Souza will always be my first and bestest run-in with a craven lying crank. And for those of you who are amazed and/or appalled that this latest piece of lunatic neo-birtherism is the cover story of Forbes magazine, let’s not forget that he got his first big break in 1991 with a cover story in the Atlantic.
