Christopher Hitchens is as obnoxious as they come, but there's no doubt that the man can argue eloquently. And unfortunately, as her many Hardball appearances have shown, Joan Walsh is a lightweight when it comes to making intelligent argument. In all her media appearances, she seems primarily interested in fawning obsessively about Hillary Clinton, aggressive frowning, sucking up to Chris Matthews, and trying to enhance her minimal value as a political pundit by shrilly restating the opinions of real political pundits. So it was truly satisfying to watch the blowhard Hitch bitchslap Joan Walsh on the Dec 1 show.
Here it is in all its glory.
