D’Souza Does the Happy Dance

Dinesh D’Souza is absolutely thrilled that he didn’t get jail time as part of his sentence for committing a campaign law felony. Immediately after being sentenced, he went on Fox News and tried yet again to claim he was the victim of selective prosecution and to crow about having escaped Obama’s hangman’s noose.

Dinesh D’Souza used his September 23 appearance on The Kelly File to resuscitate the myth that his indictment was political retribution. D’Souza described his reaction to his sentence to host Megyn Kelly, saying “I’ve got a big smile on my face now,” because “this was really an effort to put me out of business…and a federal judge said ‘no.'” D’Souza added, “There seems to be a pattern of this administration using the instruments of the law, the IRS, and so on to go after its critics.” Despite D’Souza’s recently announced sentence and his guilty plea to a felony, Kelly continued her longstanding support for the right-wing media darling, declaring “Only you, Dinesh, could walk away from this kind of an experience where you admit you committed a felony, you were facing 16 months in jail, and now the whole process has restored your faith in America, the judicial system and it’s made you love the country even more.”

Seriously, Megyn Kelly, could you fellate him just a little more on national television? They did everything but show a picture of him wrapped in an American flag while riding a bald eagle.

    What. A. Prick.

    I’m guessing D’Souza just made the judge extremely mad, basically throwing it in his face that he was completely insincere in his admission of guilt. He’d better hope he doesn’t get charged a second time. No doubt the next time around the plea bargain won’t be as successful.

    Hold on. I thought the government was corrupt and about to collapse…and now everything’s hunky dory because a guy got the exact amount of punishment that anyone else would have gotten in the same circumstance? (Seriously, I never thought prison was likely in this case.)

    What is this, some sort of plot to distract us from BENGHAZI?

    I’m not sure “resuscitate” is the right word, since he was saying the same thing on Faux News even after he plead guilty and until his lawyers, no doubt, told his to shut up about it. “Brought it out from its temporary hiding place” might be closer to the truth.

    Fact is that D’Shitta got off easy. Usually, someone who beats his wife gets prison time.

    I reiterate what I said a couple days ago: he’s in no position to lecture non-believers about morality.

  • busterggi

    So DD basically got off scott-free. But he is still being persecuted, right?

  • tbp1

    @#6, You see, the mere fact that he was inconvenienced by actually having to defend himself after committing a felony is terrible persecution. In a just world he could have simply had his accusers flogged for daring to question their betters.

    Of course in the world he would like to be living in, he would also be a dirty wog and lucky to be allowed to use the front door of his masters.

  • cptdoom

    @eric #2 – He better hope he doesn’t do anything to screw up his 5-year probation or his 8-month stint in the halfway house, because I have a feeling this judge is not going to be happy if he has to see D’Souza again.

    I know that “fellate” in this context means “to fawn over to an embarrassingly absurd degree,” but….this still comes off rather creepy.

    He’s lucky Obama is so ruthlessly incompetent.

    He’s lucky Obama is so ruthlessly incompetent.

    Or that he is so wimpishly efficient.

  • Dave Maier

    “a pattern of this administration using the instruments of the law, the IRS, and so on to go after its critics”

    Right, that’s exactly Obama’s plan to silence his critics – wait until one commits a felony and then, in a move right out of the Alinsky playbook, bring them to justice.

    Also, what wneroaster @1 said.

    “Or”?

    “I’ve got a big smile on my face now,” because “this was really an effort to put me out of business…and a federal judge said ‘no.’”

    What he actually said was, “I’m not sure, Mr. D’Souza, that you get it,” and he was pretty dead-on about that.

    “Seriously, Megyn Kelly, could you fellate him just a little more on national television?”

    Well there is just so much that even Megyn Kelly can’t swallow.

    I saw a debate between him and Hitchens once. He’s nothing. A big bag of vacuous air that sounds the same way as when you pinch the sides of the balloon opening and it makes a PFFFTTHTHTHTHTPPPLLLP sound.

    The most generous way to describe him is that he’s like that slime that accumulates on the underside of a soap dish.

    Oh and isn’t he best buds with Michael Schermer, for some reason? HOW DID THAT HAPPEN

    Is it still creepy if it had been Sean Hannity doing the fellating rather than Megyn Kelly?

    Would you prefer that we used a gender neutral orifice as metaphor?

    “Is it still creepy if it had been Sean Hannity doing the fellating rather than Megyn Kelly?”

    Honestly, I would find a still picture of Hannity and D’Souza pretty creepy even if they were just standing there…

  • nicemarmot

    How can he be an admitted felon and a victim of selective prosecution? Though by now I shouldn’t be, I am constantly amazed at people’s ability to maintain beliefs which are wholly unsupported by evidence or irreconcilably contradictory. It must be nice to live in a world like that.
