Quote of the Day

"Don't know what came over me: the dear boy did suddenly seem extremely sapphic, yet I think my intuitions must have been scrambled all the same, since what I was actually thinking was: 'Andrew really wants to have Barack Obama's fucking child'. Clearly some confusion of categories on my part."—Useless wally Christopher Hitchens explaining why he exasperatedly scolded Andrew Sullivan "don't be such a lesbian" last weekend.

What a sad life Hitchens leads that he has lived on two different continents, traveled all over the world, and has more money than he could drink in an entire lifetime, and yet still he has never had the opportunity to meet a lesbian mother. Boy howdy, wouldn't that be a zany category-confuser!
