It’s not 24/7, but it’s nighttime confinement, as profiled in a bizarre Vanity Fair article by Evgenia Peretz.

D’Souza tells Peretz that on his first night in the center, his 400-pound bunkmate struck up a conversation: “He goes, ‘Hey, man, what are you in for?’ I go, ‘Campaign-finance violation.’ He goes, ‘What the fuck does that mean?’ I go, ‘Well, my friend was running for the Senate, and I gave her too much money. I raised money for her in the wrong way.’ So he goes, ‘Shit! Can you raise money for me?’ I go, ‘No.’ Then there was the mandatory rape class, which was about ‘establishing that all of us have a right not to be raped.’ Very reassuring.”

D’Souza does show flashes of self-reflection. Looking back on the recent events in his life, he tells Peretz, “Part of what you learn about life is that a wrecking ball can come out of nowhere, and it isn’t just going to take out your left toe. It can hit you right in the middle and take you down.”

    One of the other things you learn Dinesh is that you have choices as to what your words and actions will be, and those words and actions have consequences. Give my love to Bubba.

    See there is a God! Dinesh then says ‘maybe we should break in the top bunk tonight???’

    I hope his “bunkmate” is an Obama fan.

    I hope nobody makes rape jokes.

      Too late. See above – although it does fall under the “Referencing ‘Office Space'” general exception.

      People think rape is funny & an important part of our prison system, including quite a few libs, and including quite a few folks who otherwise seem to be decent people.

      It’s pretty high up on my list of things I will never understand.

    Don’t expect any reflection or humility to last once he’s back into the right wing fantasy dementia.

    Yeah didi a wrecking ball can hit anyone anytime and most don’t have your resources to recover from that hit, that’s why we have a safety net, for the disabled , the kids, the single moms, the mentally challenged, the old, the infirm, and just plain poor slobs who get bounced around in the glorious free market.

    De Louza’s former bunkmate is telling some good stories about Dinesh. Turns out he won’t shut up, he cries in his sleep, and he hates America.

    To quote the immortal Baretta theme song: “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”

    Love the photo. I can imagine d’Souza’s 400 lb. roommate telling him he likes long walks on the beach after seeing it. Here’s to lots of soulful conversation between the two; who knows where it will lead?
