What is Hitchens whining about on Hardball?
Did he just say that this was the week that Joe Wilson's story falls apart? Did I miss something, or is Tweety's show now Russ Limbaugh with a tie?

1. Hitchens backs up all his claims with long ago discredited
sources and information. He is a very eloquent boob.

3. But how did he get on the show tonight to claim that Wilson's story
was bogus? I don't get it. How was Wilson wrong? All the facts show that Wilson was correct and that's why the Bush Administration attacked him.

7. The thing that Hitchens pounces on is a misreading of what Wilson
said one time about Cheney sending him. Which Wilson's own transcript later supported Wilson on. But Hitchens continues his crap ever since.

2. Hitchens is an idiot.
But he did say Powell is B**h's bitch earlier today. It was edited out of the late segment.

4. Psst! He found WATER in his water glass. Do you know how much of a shock
that is to someone like him? If ever his blood alcohol level falls under 0.19% he becomes incoherent. Well, relatively speaking, that is.

6. He certainly sound like he was way out on a limb that was too small
to hold him.

9. Someone should convince Snitchens that the Army is giving free
booze to all in Iraq. He'd be on the first troop transport.

10. You heard it right
I was going to post the same question myself. What was he alluding to? My guess is that this is an effort to try to rehabilitate there original false claims and their reputation.

11. Some experts say Bush lied...Some say he didn't...
so I guess it's impossible to know the truth? :sarcasm:

12. The Great American Scam
So Wilson's wife was outed by the terrorists in the WH. What to do? Discredit the Wilson's!
It's their fault!
This is so typically bushit!

13. I swear Hitchens' mug was full of scotch or something
It's nearly impossible to make out what he's mumbling most of the time, anyway.

When you do make out his words, you realize he's certifiable.

Yes, he thinks that Iraq was trying to buy nukes (or the uranium, anyway) from Niger. He's apparently just about the only person left on this planet still clinging to that story.

16. He sounds totally certifiable.
Like he's the last media pundit to figure out that the Barbara Olson days are over. So to speak.

15. lots here, including a link to a thread that debunks the article
to which your question referred. that's what Hitchens was talking about when he said it's going around that Wilson's story is falling apart. that was pretty funny, cause the only place it's being currently talked about is in Hitchens' OWN story! neither Thomas nor Tweety took the bait...just left his blathering about Wilson hang there
