Christopher Hitchens - American Hero (via the U.K.)
Now for something completely removed from Plastic Surgery........
An amazing ten minutes of television was on Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO over the weekend. Vanity Fair columnist, Christopher Hitchens, was a panelist on the show in an incendiary and brilliant segment. For those of you not familiar with the 'Hitch, he is a witty & sardonic British ex-pat who is the ultimate contrarian. He's also my hero and someone you never want to miss when he's on TV.
In the span of ten minutes he silences both Bill Maher & the left-leaning audience with a searing dismissal of pavlovian responses to our President and the fight against the rise of Islamic fascism. He was truly a shark among minnows in the intellectual firepower department as well as also managing to give them the finger (see picture above) in a devastatingly effective way.
The video can be downloaded here.
I'd like to thank The Malcontent blog for the video capture.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming!
