"If you gave him an enema..."

For the last few years it has seemed that Christopher Hitchens had lost his mind. His arguments for the Iraq war made this talented and interesting writer a polarising figure for the Left, and those of us who felt that his seeming alliance with the Right something of a defection, if not an outright act of treason. This week, however, we have had an illustration of just how good Mr Hitchens can be; he has been doing the talkshow circuit in America sentencing the "Reverend" Jerry Falwell to an Anti-theist Hell in a quite brilliant manner. Here he is on Hannity & Colmes, and keep an ear out for the very last line before the end:

From this side of the Atlantic it really is astonishing that people like Sean Hannity can actually get their own TV programme and it be mistaken for news. I'm not saying we're a great deal better than this but at least we don't have to put up with too many religious nutjobs substituting conviction in their beliefs (however ludicrous) for political fact. Blair aside, that is.
