We are all Kenyan anti-colonialists now

Pure gold from Newt Gingrich:

“What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]?” Gingrich asks. “That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”

He’s referring to this masterpiece of refusing to use Occam’s Razor by Dinesh D’Souza, which pivots on D’Souza’s bewilderment with Obama’s behavior to make the case that he’s just fulfilling the dreams of his long-dead, absentee father.

In fact, what really seems to be the case (to those of us not afflicted with being Newt Gingrich) is that D’Souza — as a principled conservative — held some seriously insane ideas about Obama, and when the President failed to behave according to caricature, D’Souza had to search for an even nuttier explanation.
