One of my favorite intellectuals, Christopher Hitchens (a Brit who just joined us as an American citizen, due to his admiration of the precious rights given us by our founders in our Constitution), calls a spade a spade on the Clinton candidacy. He isn't a big Obama fan either (calling him "shallow and flaky"), nor does he seem to know about the Peter Paul trial and Sen. Clinton's ties to that corrupt mess. Further, as one of the world's most prominent Atheists, Hitchens is none too fond of Obama's ties to his church...but that's nothing unusual for Hitchens, and nothing personal against Obama. Hitchens's broadly anti-religious ideas are well known.
In this MSNBC Morning Joe video, Hitchens likened Hillary to "the undead" who will need a "stake through her heart" before she quits. Meanwhile, Sen. Clinton had a fun-loving exchange on Fox News, via a passed note, with The Architect himself: Karl Rove. It's funhouse mirror time, folks!
But Hitch has sure got Clinton's number, and he's got great advice for Obama on strategy. Too bad he can't be bothered to show up 100% sober for his interviews, but...hey, the guy has interesting insights, at the very least. Further, for some reason (he's a Brit? He's an atheist? He has a better vocabulary than the entire Morning Joe staff combined?), they actually let him speak and don't interrupt much. That alone is a victory.
