protofascism and the consfusion of lesbians
Thanks to Media Matters for this little clip of Christopher Hitchens, protofascist masquerading as charmingly humorous political commentator. Apparently lesbians forget their points when interrupted. In case you've forgotten, Hitchens was the writer outraged that Bill Clinton was a rapist. He also traveled to the Kurdish areas of Iraq and told us how popular Bush was there. He was one of the many voices pushed hard for the war with an Engish accent. And then he wrote a book promoting atheism. And where should we look next to stop the deadly spread of religious fundamentalism? One guess, two syllables: Iran.
