"Cheap Laughs"

Even though Christopher Hitchens most likely thinks I'm an idiot, I still can't get enough of his writing. The man has some serious chops. His latest piece in The Atlantic on Jon Stewart's rise to the top of the news heap is definitely worth reading.

Not a money quote. Simply my favorite quote of the article:

"Franken very often refers to himself as a “satirist,” which is a piece of hubris that comes to him too glibly and naturally. One wants to say, on hearing or reading such a claim, “Actually, sunshine, we’ll be the judge of that.”"
