christopher hitchens

there aren't many things i agree with him on- religion and science are two that i do. and when he is right on- he is right on...

"This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated and the cultured. And those who prate of spiritual warfare and demons are not just "people of faith" but theocratic bullies. On Nov. 4, anyone who cares for the Constitution has a clear duty to repudiate this wickedness and stupidity."

i have said it before- the man has a way with words. guess that's the elitist in him ;)

Ok, my personal opinion of Hitch is this:

He is a gigantic bag o' batshit. He is a drunkard and a mean drunk at that. He has little respect for anyone other than himself.

I really could give a shit what Hitch thinks of anything. He couldn't handle the audience on Bill Maher one night and went nuts...thats Hitch for moi. ;)

well, i suppose that could be said of any of the talking heads that abound in print and on the tube. :) at least he did do a stint on the ground in places that were 'real'- battlegrounds, etc. at any rate, i agree with you on most points- but he is an excellent, albeit, pompous writer with a snooty vocabulary that is music to this lefty elitist's ears :)

His views on religion are not to my liking and how he described Michelle Obama whom I really respect were outrageous.

But that is just Hitch..he hates everyone but himself. ;)

Everything starts and ends with "Jesus." He takes care of all. Thus there is no need for those other wasteful and sinful things.
