Faggots and Maggots
I wonder what it says about me that people like Denesh S'Souza no longer make me angry, they just make me sad and remind why I've dropped out of obsessively following politics like I used to.
He was on the Colbert Report last night promoting his new book, The Enemy at Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11. And ironically, by pretending to agree with Mr. D'Souza, Mr. Colbert actually gets him to admit that he sympathizes with the terrorists. Sort of tricky and under-handed, yes, and D'Souza clearly doesn't get the joke and that it's on him, but perhaps he should do his research before he agrees to appear on talk shows.
Crooks and Liars has the video up here. Trust me, it's well worth watching, if for no other reason than to see this asshole hang his head in humiliation at the end of the interview.
There's also a pretty brutal Washington Post review of the book here.
