Dinesh D'Souza Advocates Theocracy

Here’s another—much longer—review by Andrew Sullivan of Dinesh D’Souza’s rather despicable book, The Enemy at Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11. I think Sullivan got it right when he says:

The crisis, rather, is of a different kind. It is intellectual, and it is deeper than anything captured by the conventional categories. The sole merit of Dinesh D'Souza's new book is that it acknowledges this intellectual collapse, even as it is itself a document of that collapse; and it proposes a new way forward.
When you’re advocating a theocracy—or theoconservatism—you are essentially trying to abrogate the Constitution. The Bush Administration has done a really good job of dismantling the Constitution already in its war against terrorism (or is it freedom?) and replacing it with a theocratic dogma that Dinesh D’Souza promotes in his book.
