Someone Give This Man an Award

Matt Taibbi has a thing or two to say about Chris Hitchens’ evisceration of Michael Moore.

Well, that’s rich, isn’t it? Christopher Hitchens crawling out of a bottle long enough to denounce Michael Moore as a coward. I can’t imagine anything more uplifting, except maybe a zoo baboon humping the foot of a medical school cadaver.
All journalists are cowards. Hitchens knows it, I know it, everybody in this business knows it. If there were any justice at all, every last goddamn one of us would be lowered, head-first, into a wood-chipper. Over Arizona. Shoot a nice red mist over the whole state, make it arable for a year or two. A year’s worth of fava beans and endive for the children of Bangladesh: I dare anyone in our business to say that that wouldn’t represent a better use of our rotting bodies than the actual fruits of our labor.

And he’s just getting started.
