Wright vs. Hitchens

The Republican Party (namely the Fascists among them), as well as some Democrats, would do well to watch this debate over the war on terrorism between Robert Wright ("The Evolution of God") and Christopher Hitchens (Vanity Fair).

In watching it myself, there were times when I wanted to reach through the monitor and ring Hitchens' neck; but at the same time I had to respect the courage of his convictions, even years after the evidence has proven him so terribly wrong.

THIS is how a policy debate should take place, especially on something as grave as war. Had the United States Senate actually took the time to think it all through, to weigh the intelligence (or lack thereof), well, things may have turned out a bit differently, don't you think?
