Dinesh D'Sousa is the biggest liar out there:
Yes, that's a strong claim. But check out what Unqualified Offerings has noted
about his recent Town Hall essay. It's beyond belief. Here are two excerpts from D'Sousa, who is writing about Abu Ghraib:
Abu Ghraib did not reflect the shared values of America, it reflected the sexual immodesty of liberal America. Lynndie England and Charles Graner were two wretched individuals from Red America who were trying to act out the fantasies of Blue America.
To his credit, President Bush made no attempt to defend Abu Ghraib, firmly asserting that it didn’t represent America. What he should have said is that it didn’t represent the values of conservative America. In reality Abu Ghraib did reflect the values of a debauched liberalism run amok.

Dinesh D’Souza is the Rishwain Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. He is given platforms at National Review’s The Corner and Town Hall, and is frequently invited to opine on TeeVee. Why?
A very good question.
I wonder if some of these clowns that are asked onto TV shows are there because they have really good agents.
It's the same old Republican shtick -- loudly accuse the Democratic Party of doing all the things you are secretly doing. Granted, very unartfully done, but nonetheless the media is used to treating it seriously.
In reality Abu Ghraib did reflect the values of a debauched liberalism run amok.
This is not a new meme.
What happened at Abu Ghraib obviously demonstrates those liberal values, like those great liberal leaders, Jimmy Swaggert who just watched, Billy James Hargis who buggered both boy and girl students, and Ted Haggard who liked guys, and a dozen menbers of congress with their various experiences.
He also appears on NPR, which is why they'll never see a penny more from me.
