Christopher Hitchens on Sarah Palin

As you all know Christopher Hitchens passed away yesterday. Being a Christian I didn't agree with his lack of faith, but I did respect the guy. He had the best put down of Sarah Palin ever:

“She's got no charisma of any kind [but] I can imagine her being mildly useful to a low-rank porn director.”

  1. Say what you will about Hitch, but his command of the language
    could bring you to tears, hysterical laughter or searing rage.

    And sometimes, as with the Palin comment, he got it exactly right.

    RIP

  2. Hitchens was a gem. His last articles for "Vanity Fair" were just as caustic, just as smart, just as 'right' as anything he ever wrote. He, unlike LaPalin, contributed a lot of good during his time on this Earth. I think these faux "Christians" could spend more time doing good and less demeaning others. I think Jesus would like that...a lot.
    And Hitch too!

  4. One of the last of a dying breed of truly independent journalists.

    Hitch´s friend, Salman Rushdie, tweeted: "Goodbye, my beloved friend. A great voice falls silent. A great heart stops."

  6. The reason you missed it 9:58 is because you are very limited. Very limited folks miss a lot. Hitchens spoke the truth. Given your abilities, I think fluffer is something you should aim for. It is a job that suits you.

  7. He was truly one of a kind; a very unique voice of reason. My favorite quote of his was the smack down he gave on Jerry Falwell on his demise; “If you were to give Falwell an enema you could bury him in a matchbox.”

    Anyone that says, "you need love and life in your heart." is in desperate need of love and life in their own heart.

    Normally I would feel bad for someone like you, but you don't deserve any sympathy, you deserve to stew in your own nastiness. Just like your pathetic idol Gov. Dirty Wig
