Hitch

Leave it to Hitchens to come up with this perfect sentence:
"Indeed, I sometimes can’t help feeling that it might be nice to live in a country where a presidential nominee will call you up, drop the names of your intellectual enemies and recall their perfidious reactions to one of your books, before adding, 'Do you really think I’m an idiot or do you really believe what you are saying, that these people are your family?'"
