Is JUST around the corner. I'm wondering for those of you who are going to have a shot of JWB... or those of you who will have to settle for the gas station bought single shot of tequila rose, lol...what are your favorite videos/quotes etc... the best of the best... of Hitchens...
Love it! And your shot of choice?? lol
Here's a video I've always liked...Can't take all the credit. Thanks Reg!
Once again I am working on Hitchday so I'll be avoiding hard alcohol. I am certainly thinking of Hitch, however. More than any particular quote, I just love the sound of his voice and I'm glad to live in an age when I can access it at will.
I luv his debates - even when angry, he always seemed calm, and his mellifluous voice, so British, so foppish, so bohemian. so articulate, so cutting. I am grateful for Youtube.
Throw in some violins....very uplifting
@Unseen: Mr Cat lover...you'll like this one...
“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.”
“If they gave Jerry Falwell an enema, they could bury him in a matchbox.”
I remember Sean Hannity outraged that Hitchens would say such horrible things about the dead.
And Hitchens came onto his radio show and said, well he was an evil man.
Such a bold statement...
“Mother Teresa was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God. She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction.”
Honestly...until he said it just like that, I had never thought about it like that.
