Jesus fucking christ it’s making me motherfucking sick to see Hitchens’s dick being sucked left and right by supposed left-wing bloggers just because he has decided that McCain and Palin are deranged incompetent scuzbuckets.
Hitchens was wrong, wrong, wrongity fucking wrong on the Iraq war, and was one of its loudest and most articulate drumbeaters. He’s also no motherfucking friend to women. I think it’s fucking stupid and counterproductive to give cookies to dumbfuck blind squirrels like Hitchens just because they happen to stumble on an acorn now and then.
Instead of lauding an obnoxious warmongering misogynist asshole like Hitchens for not being totally delusional, how about all the people who have recognized McCain and Palin for the deranged right-wing shitbags they are from the get-go, but who also demonstrate a tendency to get other important shit correct?
I don’t get this phenomenon where some on the left pop woodies and wet their panties every time some prominent right-wing scuzbucket “sees the light”. These motherfuckers are fleeing the GOP and other “conservative” movements like rats a sinking ship. They do not deserve any praise whatsoever for this self-serving pathetic behavior that merely demonstrates once and for all that they are unprincipled opportunists and always have been; rather, they deserve our disdain and, maybe, pity.
Just because you happen to agree with Hitchens on his stance toward godbotherer religious fuckwits–and now on McCain/Palin–doesn’t make him your friend or ally.
