Hitchens Update — it speaks!

This Magazine Staff

Thanks to everyone who slogged through my whine about Christopher Hitchens last week. I feel five pounds lighter.

So, what appears recently in Britain’s The Independent? A truly fascinating analysis of the modern Hitchens, much of it in his own words. It explains a great deal, though not the decline of his rhetoric.

I particularly like how he separates the right. It’s all about the motives. Kissinger, bad. Cheney, bad. Wolfowitz, good!

Again, very little about Bush.

Cue the crickets.
