Oh Happy day

Finally, a happy confluence of two things that always bring me joy, an auspicious omen in this PMS-besotted day. The Onion has lampooned the Hitch! Headline: Christopher Hitchens Forcibly Removed From Trailer Park After Drunken Confrontation With Common-Law Wife . From the report:

When the officers attempted to remove Hitchens from the premises, the leftist intellectual became physically and verbally abusive toward the officers, calling them "shitkickers," "bitches," and "effete liberal apologists for the atrocities of late-stage capitalism."

Police were initially summoned when neighbors reported hearing shouting and a loud crash, followed by a rambling polemic on Kissinger's alleged covert approval of Indonesia's illegal invasion of East Timor in 1975.

Despite the disturbances, the neighbors like him alright. Says one:
"So long as Hitch can learn to keep his mouth shut about Christianity being symptomatic of the 'savage and ignorant prehistory of our species' and whatnot, I'm sure he'll cause no trouble that a few cups of black coffee and a night in the drunk tank can't solve."

(the main story in the Onion is pretty funny this week too)
