Upsize This!: Christopher Hitchens on Fahrenheit 911

Upsize This! :: View topic - Christopher Hitchens on Fahrenheit 911: "One of the many problems with the American left, and indeed of the American left, has been its image and self-image as something rather too solemn, mirthless, herbivorous, dull, monochrome, righteous, and boring. How many times, in my old days at The Nation magazine, did I hear wistful and semienvious ruminations? Where was the radical Firing Line show? Who will be our Rush Limbaugh? I used privately to hope that the emphasis, if the comrades ever got around to it, would be on the first of those and not the second. But the meetings themselves were so mind-numbing and lugubrious that I thought the danger of success on either front was infinitely slight.

Not that anyone paid attention a mere one post down but here again is that wonderful, amazing responise to Hitchens."
