“Vote Obama” by Greg Hunter

I try to monitor my emotions pretty closely when I follow politics.  Feelings of righteous anger, the thrill of hearing your beliefs amplified on a larger stage or echoed by a large body of people–these are fundamentally dangerous things.  So it’s with a slight sense of caution and embarrassment that I mention how gleeful professional contrarian Christopher Hitchens’ recent takedown of McCain/Palin made me feel: http://www.slate.com/id/2202163/

Whether you agree with him or not–frequently, I don’t–Hitchens is undoubtedly one of the best political writers around in the areas of style and wit, and when he describes McCain’s “increasingly obvious and embarrassing deficit, both cognitive and physical,” well…maybe a slight grin of affirmation is okay.

Also, here is a picture of Hitchens being waterboarded:
