Topic: The Culture of Life
Christopher Hitchens, the hard-drinking acerbic defender of the war(s) and reluctant apologist for George Bush (we need to show that middle-easterners a thing or two and Bush is just the right guy to do that) – who used to be of the left – here takes on the issue that is consuming so much discussion in the country. It seems he won’t go with the flow and support his friends on the right in their crusade to save the still functioning body of the woman with no brain left. Oh my.
And he tosses off some good lines – even though he says he “sincerely intended to be the only scribbler in America who stayed out of this most stupid and degrading argument.”
Now that is cold.
How about this?
This man is not I happy. And I think he’s right. But then again, my soul was damned to hell long ago.
There's no resurrecting Terri Schiavo.
