No, not because he's drunk all the time.
But rather, because of this kind of drivel, in which he smugly asserts Obama is a latter day Dukakis, (and, he thinks, rhetorically) asks:
OK, Hitch, how about this line from his convention speech since you asked about this first:
Hitch, you're a dumbass.
Folks like Hitchens (who act like the very sons of liberty) always attack liberals and Democrat for their supposed mealy-mouthed "decency" — code word, for their crowd, for wussie. To say, "My guy may be an idiot and doesn't deserve to win, but he's better than your spineless wimp." Then to evade any responsibility for the gutless advocacy. "I didn't want Bush to win — it's just your candidate was so pathetic."
Memo to Hitch: Not this time. Not this year.
