I will miss Christopher
Hitchens. He once described himself on C-Span as being ''not just
liberal, but radical liberal.'' He attacked Mother Theresa, and could
indeed be the consummate liberal twat. But, unlike other Liberals Hitchens was principled.
Later in life it seemed to me that he become more of an
18th century liberal, and was closeted guilty pleasure for
me. And his command of the English language and acid
wit! Brilliant. I've chosen a moment from Bill
Maher's show in 2006 as my official eulogy.
