I’ll Take Big Mac Over The Whopper

Christopher Hitchens’ (probably my favorite radical atheist), latest column says much of what the media should have been reporting about She Who Must Not Be Named for the last sixteen years. Even in this, the least deceptive phase of their SWMNBN coverage, the media still can’t manage to report the true scope of the witch’s habit of lying. Fortunately, Hitchens never developed the habit of biting his tongue, as this gem about SWMNBN’s sellout of Bosnia for socialized medicine demonstrates:
It’s hardly necessary for me to point out that the United States did not receive national health care in return for its acquiescence in the murder of tens of thousands of European civilians. But perhaps that is the least of it. Were I to be asked if [SWMNBN] has ever lost any sleep over those heaps of casualties, I have the distinct feeling that I could guess the answer. She has no tears for anyone but herself. In the end, and over her strenuous objections, the United States and its allies did rescue our honor and did put an end to Slobodan Milosevic and his state-supported terrorism. Yet instead of preserving a polite reticence about this, or at least an appropriate reserve, [SWMNBN] now has the obscene urge to claim the raped and slaughtered people of Bosnia as if their misery and death were somehow to be credited to her account! Words begin to fail one at this point. Is there no such thing as shame? Is there no decency at last? Let the memory of the truth, and the exposure of the lie, at least make us resolve that no [member of her family] ever sees the inside of the White House again.
Fortunately this is the year when the media began to report some of SWMNBN’s nasty habits. Granted, they’re not telling the entire story and the only reason they’re telling some of it is because Empty Suits are in fashion this year in media circles. Thank God for that. Thank God for Hitchens, just don’t tell him I said that.
