Hitch Makes It So Hard to Hate Him
The guy responds that Hitchens--a British writer--is a well-known drunk and must have been drunk when he wrote it.
Andrew Sullivan rushes to Hitchens' defense, saying he was with Hitchens when he filed the piece, and that Hitchens was "stone-cold sober."
And here's what Hitchens says in response, on Hugh Hewitt's radio show:
Well, good for Andrew. How nice of him.... And well, I mean, I don't know about stone cold sober. I'm sure with Andrew, I must have had a drink to celebrate the piece. So he may be exaggerating that.How can you not love the guy?
