"On Thursday evening, as the news broke that conservative author Dinesh D'Souza had been indicted by the feds for allegedly making illegal campaign donations to an unnamed 2012 Senate candidate (widely presumed to be Wendy Long, a long-shot Republican who was crushed by incumbent Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in New York), liberal commentators had trouble hiding their glee—or, what I called on Twitter, Dineshenfreude. After all, for years D'Souza has been a right-wing bad boy spouting the most noxious criticism of the left and being rewarded for his exploits. More recently, he was the fellow who derived the odious theory that President Barack Obama could only be understood if viewed as the secret keeper of the flame of Kenyan anti-colonialism—a notion that Newt Gingrich giddily embraced and promoted. D'Souza's movie, 2016: Obama's America, contends that Obama, driven by the remnants of this anti-colonial rage inherited from his father, had a covert second-term plan to weaken and impoverish the United States of America. It depicts Obama as anti-American, anti-Western, and anti-white."

Great word, David Corn!
I find myself so immersed in dineshenfreude right now that I need to pee. It can't be good to feel so good about that little Indian weasel getting nailed for sleaze; I'm sure it will affect the disposition of my immortal soul... wait... I'm an atheist, so who cares? That smug greasy snake-oil-peddling hatemonger had it coming.
Here's a joke: What's the best way to "take out" Dinesh D'Souza?
You pick up Reince Priebus by the ankles and club him to death with him.
I'll be here all week.
