A Babe Still in Bunting


While the above did not get me out of bed, it certainly delayed my return.

Just Look at that masterpiece. Savor the glowering majesty.

Imagine the premise (as the straight to video dvd cover art asks) and what it would mean.

I had no idea that this thing existed, or imagined that it could. Thanks to an end of the year movie list I was introduced to the horror, the palpitating horror of an alternative history in which the world had to do without America. Only one man could imagine the unimaginable and to him is owed a great debt by the 35 people who watched the thing all the way through.

Well I have imagined a premise of my own.

[Convicted criminal Dinesh D'Souza]

And I try, but I cant imagine if we had missed (blurb from souzaphones about page) this:

Called one of the “top young public-policy makers in the country” by Investor’s Business Daily,[Convicted criminal Dinesh] D’Souza quickly became known as a major influencer on public policy through his writings. His first book, Illiberal Education (1991), publicized the phenomenon of political correctness in America’s colleges and universities and became a New York Times bestseller for 15 weeks. It has been listed as one of the most influential books of the 1990s.

Top young public-policy maker? If putting a poo-stick to paper and scribbling Orwellian screeds makes one a policy maker then I guess I can’t fault the wisdom of Investor’s Business Daily. I mean I thought that elected public officials were the makers of public policy, apparently I was wrong. Without “Illiberal Education” would we have ever had “Liberal Fascism”.

If you think about it this guy put a crack in the door and with a blowjob as a wedge, Jonah Goldberg pried it off its hinges.

The following is an invitation:

I’m Not Surprised When Leftists Start Screaming
They’ve spent a lot of time manufacturing their narrative, and I’m challenging it. See a little of what makes the left so mad—my free weekly emails give you a taste of what I do.

No shit we have…I mean whahuh? Projectoclese forgot his toga and it it not one of those kinds of parties.

Back when he was but a lad of 20 while at the prestigious Dartmouth college his winger bonafides were just taking shape, I mean Reagan had not even been in office for a year, Jerry Falwell was not yet a household name and televangelists were just getting their toes wet.

The Dartmouth Review, a conservative weekly student newspaper funded by off-campus right-wing sources (see 1980), publishes the names of the officers of Dartmouth College’s Gay Straight Alliance (GSA), along with material that had been stolen from the GSA’s confidential files. Many students, faculty members, administrators, and family members did not know that the “outed” students were gay until they read the article in the Review. One outed student reportedly contemplates suicide over his exposure. Review founding editor Greg Fossedal later says, “I felt terrible about it,” and editor [Convicted criminal] Dinesh D’Souza says he and his fellow editors did not know that the GSA had an exemption from the university over making its officers’ names public. According to D’Souza, he merely wanted to attack the secrecy of the funding of the GSA, and accuses the organization of using university money for “gay parties, gay orgies, or whatever.”

Everything a young wingnut needs to have in the tool box, from the “Shultz defense” to “whatever”. I mean “I didn’t know” and making shit out of whole cloth plus a little “ends justifying means” is pretty much all you need to become an influential mind bleeder in right wing circles.

Shouldn’t that be “Convicted criminal Dinesh D’Souza”?


No, Major, it should be “Convicted criminal Distort D’Newsa”.


Shouldn’t that be “Convicted criminal Dinesh D’Souza”?

Why yes, yes it should.

Imma gonna smoke first though.


Good one Loomis, had not seen it before, might be stealing…


Actually, it should be “convicted criminal and adulterer Dinesh D’Souza.”


See, if D’Souza had been a leftie who got convicted, all the wingers would be loudly demanding that he get shipped back to India where he was born.

So, WTF… I’ll just say it…

Why DONT they ship this lyin’ liar back to India?


I think someone over at alicublog called him “D’vorced D’Souza.” I larfed.


Convicted criminal Dinesh D’Souza is the epitome of “A face badly in need of a punch.”

Admittedly, he faces strong competition from Ben Carson.

Big Bad Bald Bastard

My New Year’s resolution is to find a WordPress workaround.

Happy New Year, everybody.


It’s easy to make fun of Dinesh D’Souza, for his name, for his unfortunate resemblance to Mr Bean, for his serial adultery, for his career of mean spirited lies, for his credulous embrace of the most self righteous flavor of evangelical christianity, for his conviction for deliberately breaking campaign finance laws to back a loser, but those are all low hanging fruit. When you look at where he goes wrong (over and over and over) it’s because he thinks he’s a part of the ruling class, and not one of it’s useful idiots. He thinks he can get away with serial adultery, after all, it didn’t hurt Newt Gingrich any. But, no he got bounced from his job as the president of “The King’s College” in NYC precisely because pseudo intellectual religious buffoons are a dime a dozen, and it was easy for that institution to publicly demonstrate the morals they advocate and fire his adulterous butt. He thinks that election laws are for other people so he ignored the many ways in which rich people can circumvent campaign finance laws and got caught. He was low hanging fruit, I don’t think he even bothered to set up a PAC to launder the donations. This is a step so easy that Stephen Colbert set up one as a joke for a basic cable comedy show. And precisely because he is a useful idiot and not one of the elite, none of the right wing elite that he’s been pandering to his entire career felt the need to help him out, although given the clumsy way he committed the crime, it’s not clear that there was much a wealthy and powerful patron could have done to help him. Is he ever going to wise up? I don’t mean will he ever give up being a right wing, evangelical, pseudo intellectual provocateur, because he seems to think that’s his identity now, rather than for example, ‘convicted felon’. But will he ever stop thinking that he will be excused for flouting laws and the rules of his religion because he’s extra special?


But will he ever stop thinking that he will be excused for flouting laws and the rules of his religion because he’s extra special?

Nice post, Helmut.

But let me answer your final question by posing another.

Q: in all the years you’ve been visiting this website mocking rightwing wackaloons, have you ever read about a single one who ever wanted to be “excused” for their idiotic, sociopathic behaviour?


Helmut, spot on old chap. You should have seen the page I had up but didn’t need where dinesh was namedropping c-listers and gushing like a child over it. “she went to my premiere, and re-tweets me…” and the like.

Unfortunately being even a marginal c list winger hack still seems to pay the bills, but yes, useful tool who thinks he is bigger than his britches….


I hesitate to use a phrase like “bigger than his britches”, because that seems mighty close to calling him uppity. It’s not his ambition that trips him up, or not completely. It’s his reliance on status and in-crowd membership to save him from his blunders. He’s continues building his career on quicksand. Nothing he’s achieved, and he has had remarkable achievements* will make the right wing expend an ounce of effort on his behalf. To horribly mix a metaphor, if the conservative gravy train is a balloon ride, he doesn’t understand that he’s not a passenger, he’s ballast. He’ll be tossed over the side again when he messes up again. And conservative gasbags will float serenely on, while he flounders again.

*sadly all of his achievements are of the ‘excellence in the service of conservative and evangelical dickishness’ variety, but, weasels gotta weasel.


Oh ye of little faith in the conservative gravy train!


From elsewhere:

In an October 16, 2012 article in World Magazine, author Warren Cole Smith reported on D’Souza’s activities after a September 28 talk that year in Spartanburg, South Carolina.[94] Smith said that D’Souza, who was married at the time, checked into a hotel with another woman, and left with her the following day. In his rebuttal, D’Souza said that he and his wife had separated. He confirmed that he had been engaged to Denise Odie Joseph, noted in the article. After an investigation by officials at King’s College, he suspended the engagement to Joseph.[4] It was later revealed that Joseph was also married at the time of the Spartanburg visit.[96] D’Souza officially filed for divorce from Dixie on October 4, 2012.[97][98]

After D’Souza’s engagement became public, the trustees of The King’s College announced after meeting on October 17, 2012, that D’Souza had resigned his position as president of the university in order “to attend to his personal and family needs”.[99]

Ahhhh, those everpresent “family needs”, and values too, no doubt.


The fact is, your treatment of Dinesh Desousa shows you liberals really are the real rasists, You cannot abide that a colord USA person is nnot on the Demoncrap plantation, so you use his minorite status to exfoliate him. Your bias against freedom will undyingly undo you, and your raciscm shows your hate for USA.,


Bookmark it, libs—- six months after he gets out of the crowbar hotel, D’Mented D’Nial will have a cushy job.

It’ll either be for the Koch Brothers Climate Change Denial Institute, or the NY Police Union Racism Denial Institute, or the GOP Minority Voting Denial Institute.


The fact is, fake Gary is beating the ghost of a horse that has long since been rendered into glue. If we can moderate Pennis and other genuine wingnuts of much ilk, why can we not moderate fake Gary?


We could Austin, but he is not nearly the nuisance that pennis was.

I just scroll on by.


happy new year to all y’all! just got caught up on all the posts…i has to get re-acclimated to the wing nut waters apparently bcuz my mind is completely blown…


Good to see you, bbkf. Happy New Year to you and yours.


why can we not moderate fake Gary?

A bulldog will beat a skunk ten out of ten times but it ain’t worth the fight.


Nice post, Helmut.



I hesitate to use a phrase like “bigger than his britches”, because that seems mighty close to calling him uppity.

Yeah, not sure I agree. I see your point but am not sure it is applicable in this case, and if it is where does it end.

First I don’t know of any particular baggage associated with “bigger than his britches.” And while a phrase I cannot remember writing before because I am certain that there are better, it was the only thing that came to mind at the time. Uppity does carry with it some freight particularly with women and African Americans and in particular AA males as it could very well not 60 years ago have been a death sentence in the south.

It is a word I would like to get back as in “Fuck yeah you retrograde moron, I am fucking Uppity and your are gonna have to get used to it. It is afterall what the U in UNE stands for.

And as far as calling Dinesh uppity, that would never happen, as he is the antithesis of uppity. That Indians have moved fairy securely into the mainstream of America it would almost be like calling a white person uppity, given that they are already “up.”

Apologies for the delay wanted to respond to this one with a keyboard and not the one finger peck on the phone.


while I don’t normally enjoy the gary posts I gotta be honest and admit I chuckled at the “exfoliate” bit.


One of my coworkers used the term “uppity black guy” to describe another pilot.

This is guy is the kind who start’s sentences with “I’m not a racist”.

When I hear that it usually means “The next thing out of my mouth is going to be something racist.”



“I’m not a racist, I just play one in ” TV” real life.”

It must kill them to know that daddy and uncles could toss the n-bomb with impunity as well as everything acquainted with unbridled white supremacy (beating the wife, general sexual harrasment, etc) and he is not only left with “black guy” but has to preface the shit by having to admit to something he is not.


Watched a DVD last night and the preview for this Dinesh D’souza crap was in the previews. What I found interesting is that they kept saying the previews that this is “from the producer of Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List” — like, “hey we’re LEGIT! We’re not some low-rent crackpots working out of mom and dad’s basement!”

So I went to IMDB and did some checking and found the name Gerald Molen. He is indeed a producer of the first Jurassic Park movie as well as Schindler’s List, as well as Rain Man and Minority Report. However, he’s taken a decidedly wingnut shift, producing both of D’Souza’s last two movies and the upcoming “The Abolitionists,” which looks like teanut porn.

I mention it because I find it interesting that as much as right-wingers LOVE to hate “liberal Hollywood,” they’re just desperate to use that same value set to give themselves some sort of cultural credibility. It’s rather sad.

Meanwhile, knowing every ticket purchased to a Gerald Molen film funds D’souza’s burgeoning film career, I may need to pay closer attention …
Meanwhile, I’m thinking Gerald Molen


SB, Thanks for the info. I thought about looking up Molen, but then got distracted by a shiny thing or something.

It is sad. I almost picture a giant blender filled with calvin ball, goal posts (for relocation activities, natch), rubber and glue, heads I win tails you lose. I picture some functionary in an Acme Wingnut Lab somewhere pulling the three pronged lever to start the whole thing up in the hope of coming up with a Miracle cure that might keep the curtains on the eyes of the rubes to continue the cycle of plunder……Ok that got a little bit away from me, but these things pop into my head


Orwellian screeds? Being a little rough on Orwell, ain’t ya?


It is afterall what the U in UNE stands for.

Ok, not sure if mistake to ask what the N and E represent, but I’m gonna go ahead and do it anyway.


Also, is there like a one-comment-per month speed limit now?


Ok, not sure if mistake to ask what the N and E represent, but I’m gonna go ahead and do it anyway.

Negro and Embigulator are the answer to that question.

Also, is there like a one-comment-per month speed limit now?

Yeah, abt half the time it seems to be lying i.e it might throw a double up, other times hit the back button and resubmit seems to work.

Near as I can cypher this is a problem whose solution is located in a .php file. Access to which requires keys I do not possess, not that I look forward to mucking about trying to get some traction on the issue.


Embigulator = PENIS


Embigulator = PENIS

Never really looked at it that way, but yes, it can….

Also another number is up for perusal


If there was any retributive justice in the world. Dinesh D’Souza would fucking die from an AIDS transfusion. The would would be a better place.
