What’s it going to be, funny boy?
But what is the need for this coyness? The Democrats should stop hiding behind “freedom of choice” and become blatant advocates for divorce, illegitimacy, adultery, homosexuality, bestiality, and pornography. Indeed the Democrats could become the Party of the Seven Deadly Sins. The political advantage of this approach is that the Seven Deadly Sins are immensely popular. Imagine the political opportunities if all vices were associated with the Democratic party!
Now, Dinesh is trying to do one of two things. He is either to write tongue-in-cheek ala PJ O’Rourke, in which case he failed miserably, because what he wrote lacks even one flyspeck of wit. Or he was attempting the old tell’em what I think and apologize later line of discourse. You know, the one where you say, “Boy. Your kids sure ugly and stupid!”…followed by “What? I was kidding! Can’t you take a joke? I’m just a big kidder.”. This lets him reveal his true feelings and provides a cover story if he goes too far. What he does prove is that, like most conservatives, he lacks a sense of humor because his motives are so broad and obvious.
Since he’s a marginal figure on the right (an AEI whore-of-the-week), I find it hard to get worked up by him, so lets just say that Dinesh D’Souza is Dnot D’Funny and leave it at that.
