Yeah, it's nice that Dinesh D'Souza has been indicted for campaign finance fraud, but a little perspective, please -- the guy allegedly laundered a mere $20K, and to a candidate who got clocked, 72%-27%. Schadenfreude's fun, but we have a ridiculous patchwork of campaign finance laws, and practices that are far more corrupt than sidestepping $5000 individual donation limits are perfectly legal. (And what D'Souza did will almost certainly be made legal after the Supreme Court does some more legislating from the bench sometime this year.)
D'Souza is insufferable, but it's not as if he's been rolling up victories lately, for himself or his side. A year and a half ago he was exposed as a horndog moral hypocrite when his adultery became public (an embarrassment for a guy who at the time was the president of a Christian college). D'Souza is a self-styled intellectual, but his best-known literary effort of the past year was a racist tweet referring to the president as "Grown-Up Trayvon." In the run-up to the last presidential election, D'Souza wrote an Obama-bashing book that he turned into an Obama-bashing movie that he turned into another Obama-bahing book -- and it had no effect, as Obama managed to beat Mitt Romney by five million votes.
So D'Souza's not really one of the people destroying this country, though that's not for lack of trying. Let me know when they get one of those SOBs.
Did I say that D'Souza's not riding high these days? Follow the link in this tweet. I'm almost embarrassed for the guy (almost).
Turns out that the indictment of D'Souza is part of the larger WAR ON CHRISTMAS http://t.co/OPoRVyUHw7— TBogg (@tbogg) January 24, 2014
