The Collected One-Liners of Christopher Hitchens

I don’t want to turn this site into a Christopher Hitchens shrine or anything…but the man had a serious way with words. 

The Daily Beast has a collection of some of his best one-liners, Christopher was at his best when he was taking down the ugliest people and ideas in the pithiest, cleverest manner possible.

Here were a few gems from over the years:

ON GEORGE W. BUSH

“[George W. Bush] is lucky to be governor of Texas. He is unusually incurious, abnormally unintelligent, amazingly inarticulate, fantastically uncultured, extraordinarily uneducated, and apparently quite proud of all these things.”

Hardball with Chris Matthews, 2000

ON CATS & DOGS

“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are god.”

The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Non-Believer, 2007

ON SARAH PALIN

“She’s got no charisma of any kind [but] I can imagine her being mildly useful to a low-rank porn director.”

The Leonard Lopate Show, June 2010

ON JERRY FALWELL

“If [Falwell] had been given an enema, he could have been buried in a matchbox.”

CSPAN, April 2009
