Hitchens Slaps Down Moore

And how. Let me tell you this: I would absolutely hate to ever find myself in a debate with Christopher Hitchens. When it comes to areas where he's knowledgeable about (and there's quite a few), there's very few people in the world that can stand toe-to-toe with him and not come away red-faced embarrassed. One of those areas of knowledge he commands is Iraq, the war, and the facts and events surrounding them.

In some ways, this was like shooting fish in a barrel for him. Hitchens decided to go see Michael Moore's new movie, Fairenheit 9/11, and do a little review on Slate about it. I think it's necessary for people to do this, however it may be, simply because there are a lot of people out there that don't see that Moore is a self-aggrandizing, lying blowhard. Read the whole thing. It's a fantastic example of how you treat people like this.
