It took him long enough, but Christopher Hitchens has finally rung in on Sarah Palin. What awes me is that he was probably half in the bag when he wrote this piece for Salon, and it's still the most graceful and eloquent prose you'll read all day.
This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated and the cultured. And those who prate of spiritual warfare and demons are not just "people of faith" but theocratic bullies. On Nov. 4, anyone who cares for the Constitution has a clear duty to repudiate this wickedness and stupidity.
Yeah, what he said!
