Why Doesn't Christopher Hitchens Tell Us How He Really Feels About Palin

Needless to say, I don't agree with Christopher Hitchens on a number of issues. However, regardless of his stances on different issues, for sometime I have enojoyed his forthright, well-reasonsed commentary and his candid thoughts on a wide range of topics. That said, here's Hitchens sharing his thoughts about Palin:


Hitchens appeared on Morning Joe on MSNBC after he wrote an equally candid piece on Palin for Slate.com. Hitchens also wrote a piece last month regarding Palin for Newsweek. It is somewhat a relief to know others, in this case Hitchens, appear to be equally alarmed by the dangerous, ever-changing rhetoric spewed by some Tea Partiers generally and Palin specifically. How alarmed am I by this scattershot, divisive rhetoric? Very.
