Damn, It's Good To Be A Gangsta!

TBogg has an inside look at the wingnut welfare system. He finds this graph from the San Diego Reader regarding righty wingnut D'nish D'souza:

Since Dartmouth, the conservative fray has been quite remunerative for D'Souza. Six years ago, he and his wife bought their home in Fairbanks Ranch [exclusive community in San Diego]. The nearly 8000-square-foot house has six bedrooms, seven and a half baths, and a four-car garage, where they keep their maroon 1992 Jaguar XJS. A circular drive fronts the French country stone house. The cathedral-like front room, with its full-length mirrors and tapestries, has an 18th-century French decor of (veneered) golden maple burl furniture. The slick floors echo like a museum as one walks through. In his office, there's wall-to-wall leopard-print carpet; floor-to-ceiling bookcases are stocked with titles in history, politics, and philosophy. The view out back features a bright blue pool and the arboretum-like landscape.

And all this for finding creative ways to say it's always the liberals' fault.

TBogg adds: "A leopard-print carpet? That is what a friend of mine calls "the triumph of money over taste"."
