Hitchens Worth Reading

Christopher Hitchens writes well, even when he writes things that one disagrees with. But when he writes things one agrees with, reading Hitchens is one of the great pleasures in life.
It therefore seems to me that the Republican Party has invited not just defeat but discredit this year, and that both its nominees for the highest offices in the land should be decisively repudiated, along with any senators, congressmen, and governors who endorse them.


With McCain, the "experience" is subject to sharply diminishing returns, as is the rest of him, and with Palin the very word itself is a sick joke. One only wishes that the election could be over now and a proper and dignified verdict rendered, so as to spare democracy and civility the degradation to which they look like being subjected in the remaining days of a low, dishonest campaign.

Read Hitchens's endorsement of Obama.
