Quotes of the Day: Christopher Hitchens and Lionel Chetwynd on Obama’s Speech

Filed under: Quotes, Etc. of the Day,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 1:20 pm

Hitchens’s unsparing column (HT Instapundit) on the politician I refer to as BOOHOO (Barack O-bomba Overseas Hussein “Obambi” Obama) contains this priceless passage:

You often hear it said, of some political or other opportunist, that he would sell his own grandmother if it would suit his interests. But you seldom, if ever, see this notorious transaction actually being performed …..

Then there’s Lionel Chetwynd:

….. the teaching opportunity I hoped you would evoke ….. (was) not explaining Wright’s outrage to me, but explaining his outrageousness to him. That’s how we’ll reach the postracial era: by no longer justifying ourselves with what was, instead speaking to what now exists. Not deny the past, but recognize that’s what it is: past.

Do read, and save, the whole things.
