That's hilarious.

Thanks for sharing.

I am thinking I want many different kinds of frommage strategically placed on a plate in fabulous patterns for our dindin also.

Textures and colors are very important in the presentation as well.

If you could be a dove and make sure that you do that it would be much appreciated doll.

The frommage should be very expensive, french and have delicate features.

Meade said...

Do you think maybe he meant "thespian?" As in, drama queen?

reader_iam said...

Meade: That was my first thought, too.

Otherwise, "huh." Don't quite know what to make of it. Maybe someone more hip than I can explain it.

reader_iam said...

Titus: "Fromage" or "from-m-m[good]-age"?

Bob said...

I've seen Hitch and Sullivan interviewed together before, and they seem to be close enough friends that Hitch could get away with a comment like that, he's teased Sullivan in similar terms before.

Two people of utterly no importance. One wants to get married; the other needs a bath and some dental work. Blah.

Pastor_Jeff said...

He spent chose as a mentor and spiritual guide a hateful racist in order ot understand what it is to "be black in America"?

Now I'm even more depressed.

Sorry to report it looks like the gay bar in Michigan City is no more so you'll be outa luck if you pass through there.

On the brighter side I did catch 2 coho off the lighthouse although I foul hooked one and had to throw it back. My buddy caught 3. Sat up the grill and cooked those bad boys up. Went down nice with some Stella Artois.

He's been there, done that.

They are't just close friends - they are well known to be best friends. They have both often recounted times together - dinners, TV sports, travel - in their individual writings. Of course Hitch could get away with that statement because they he has obviously said similar things to Andrew before in private.

Which still doesn't make it appropriate for public consumption.

Ann Althouse said...

Hitch was trying to further distract Sullivan after Sullivan complained about distraction. I'll bet in private Sullivan has laughed over the same crack and it would have been a big coup if Hitch could get Sully to laugh at it publicly.

He meant lesbian.

Hitchens has a gay sensibility and that is a term that some gays say to others at times when they act like Sullivan was acting in that clip.

Where's my invitation for dindin?

Also, I never received any sort of nice thank you card or morning in america mug or fake Barbara Bush pearls or Bush 4 more years bumber sticker for my donation to this joint.

Can you tell me when I should be expecting these gifts?

titusdida23yearold said...

I would even gladly accept a calendar of Pam Atlas Shrugs with some famouse neocons.

Ralph said...

Shouldn't he have told him to be more of a lesbian, ie, butch up, you wuss?

the other needs a bath and some dental work
and a stint in rehab. The first time I saw him was on CSPAN's old early morning show, obviously badly hung over.

titusdida23yearold said...

Or maybe a special vlog with full frontal-that would be nice for your elite members and sponsors.

If you notice the portion of the interview where Andrew Sullivan states that to the effect that, "Margaret Thatcher was my idol." Hitchens nearly turns purple with mirth for a moment. No doubt contemplating Sully in a Liza Minelli drag-queen out fit.

hilarity. Love them both. Obviously, lesbians are heavy on the foreplay, oils...baths...whereas a good gay man (titus?) has fast dirty sex and gets it over with. Hitch was just asking him to "hurry it up" with his point.

rhhardin said...

He's talking about Sullivan's tendency to organize softball games.

He spent chose as a mentor and spiritual guide a hateful racist in order ot understand what it is to "be black in America"?

My guess is that Michelle was the driving force there.

Pastor_Jeff said...

My guess is that Michelle was the driving force there.

So his wife thinks a hateful racist would make a good mentor, and he's okay with that?

Wright also said in an interview that he warned Obama that the church's radical reputation would hurt his plans for a political career. Obama chose to join anyway.

So either the guy has no backbone, is a rank opportunist, or actually agrees with the poison Wright spews.

None of those options inspire confidence.

Sullivan's
answer
on his blog to others who criticized Hitchens for this incident: Some people
really need to get a sense of humor

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Pastor Jeff: There's one more alternative--he's neutered by his wife--which also inspires zero confidence.

James Wigderson said...

The only reason Media Matters noticed it was because Hitchens was criticizing Hillary Clinton

AlphaLiberal said...

Have another drink, Christopher!

Joe said...

Sullivan seems rather delusional vis-a-vis Obama.

Palladian said...

"Sullivan seems rather delusional vis-a-vis Obama."

The Messiah will have that effect on people.

Andrew does seem to crave redemption.

Revenant said...

You can pretty much drop the "vis-a-vis Obama" part. He is, let's remember, approximately the only person on the planet who was shocked when George Bush came out against gay marriage.

Media Matters is a Clinton front.
