What Happened, Hitch?
christopher hitchens used to be compelling or at the very least acidly hilarious in almost all settings. now he's kind of a depressing broken record about something he can't bring himself to admit the truth about: the debacle in Iraq.
he put in a particularly ugly performance on Bill Maher's show, which apparently no one told him was supposed to be funny. not that HE needed to be funny, but he didn't seem to understand when anyone else tried to be funny either.
it's nice to have someone as smart as he clearly is in the reality-based community, as he once was, but he's now reduced to scrambling to apologize for clowns like bush and cheney and rumsfeld...
