Hitchens is always ready to present AND DEFEND his strong views; whether I agree with him or not, I am always left with something to think about after reading what Hitchens has written.
Which brings me to.....
Wish # 2 .... I wish he would challenge Palin to a real debate. You know, one citizen VS another citizen
I know he would have to 'dumb himself down' a bit ... but OH I WOULD PAY TO SEE THAT!
Sarah, full of half-baked 'ideas' and nonsense 'fridge-magnet wisdom' would look like a bubbly puddle of mousse (pun intended) in no time; we'd get to watch the airhead deflate half-way through his first rebuttal!
Hitchens on Palin; Morning Joe, MSBC Dec 15, 2009, talking about Sarah's WaPo OpEd.
Don't be too hard on her. She didn't write that piece and she probably hasn't read it. I doubt she could either read or write it. Everything she does is for effect, she's, and is always deniable. She could switch back in a minute. At the moment she thinks her tea party crowd wants to hear this kind of thing so she'll say that. She's been out to say, 'well, I don't know but I think the President ought to produce his birth certificate. I'm not saying it isn't a good question. Then later, cause she's got to go to the Gridiron dinner in Washington, and learn how to use a knife and fork and be taught by Fred Malek. She takes it back. She's a disgraceful opportunist and a real moral coward.
In fact, I just wrote my letter to Santa about it!
C/O Christopher Hitchens,
All I want for Xmas this year, is a debate between Citizen Hitchens and Citizen Palin! Please, please, pretty please! I have been SOOOOOOOOOOO good!
