Another Sanctimonious Rightwinger Explodes in Flames
You might have seen him on Real Time with Bill Maher or the Colbert Report. He's Dinesh D'souza, radical rightwing pundit, president of an Evangelical college and the guy behind the film 2016: Obama's America.
He's a weasly sort of sanctimonious, holier than thou little prick and now, true to form for his sort of Republican, he's been caught putting that prick where it doesn't belong.
If you look back over recent decades, you will find this creature surfacing in any number of conservative crusades. Stirring up jingoistic anti-Obama fantasies , for example. Or protecting traditional marriage from gays.
Which is why it has been amusing to hear D'Souza, the president of an evangelical college, explaining just how he came to be sharing a hotel room with a woman who is not his wife and introducing her as his fiancée. Apparently D’Souza was in the process of ending his marriage of twenty years, but had not quite gotten around to signing the divorce papers when he shacked up with his lady friend at a South Carolina conference. He has since “suspended” his engagement.
