Ridiculous. Love him or hate him, but his rhetoric is second to none.

My point is not to challenge his rhetorical skills but only to point out that in that clip he speaks in absolutes and with certainty which, I was led to believe in this forum, liberals loathe.

I found it interesting that Hitchens so embraced America. I presume it had more to do with the writings of Thomas Jeffereson than anything else.
He was a bit of a Rock Star in the way he lived too.

There's nothing wrong with certainty and absolutes when they're applicable. The debates are usually about when they're applicable.

who are you talking to? You seem to be raging against two different posters here.

This quote proves two valid points.

1) JT and friends are ignorant and clueless even though Hitchens made a televised appearance in their city in late 2010. (maybe they can't turn on the TV)
2) Death is a career move

Every time I feel bad for calling you a twat, you immediately post something twattish. Never the less, you can remove the "JT and" because I clearly stated that I've loved the guy for quite some time. I'll add 'poor reading comprehension' to your long list of mental deficiencies

I'm sure it will just be something equally halfwitted and uniformed, but be my guest
