Charm Monster

Christopher Hitchens, ever the gent:

By the end of the night, Christopher Hitchens was of course the last man (barely) standing, and he had some choice words for the evening's headlining comedian, Wanda Sykes. "The president should be squirming in his seat. Not smiling," he said. "The black dyke got it wrong. No one told her the rules."

(h/t Steve Benen).

In the morning, Christopher Hitchins will still be ugly.

Yeah, in more ways than one...

You can never go wrong paraphrasing Winston Churchill, by the way. (:

Wow. Just wow.

God, that shower photo. Just the hint that that gasbag has nethers makes me very sad.

As for what he said about Sykes, I'd love to see him try to say that to her face. His belief that she's some charity lesbian shipped in from the ghetto and "allowed" to participate in his pure, hallowed little world of circle jerks would lead to an especially exquisite comeuppance.

Abbey,

His belief that she's some charity lesbian shipped in from the ghetto and "allowed" to participate in his pure, hallowed little world of circle jerks would lead to an especially exquisite comeuppance. I feel like Adam Arkin, talking to your husband Jed on THE WEST WING-- "Well, how do you mean?" (:

Yeah, Hitchens. Such a sad waste, since he used to seem to have a lot of interesting things to say. But now he's just a sad, SPITTING IMAGE puppet parody of himself. And Sykes should certainly rip him a new one, although I suspect she's too cool to bother.
