Hitchens and Sullivan On CNN (Video)
Christopher Hitchens and Andrew Sullivan were on CNN’s “Situation Room” yesterday discussing the election, the war in Iraq, and other issues. Omri Ceren sets the scene nicely:
Within thirty seconds of the interview, Hitchens has corrected the interviewer twice. Within a minute and a half, he has used words and concepts that the interviewer patently does not understand. By the middle of the interview, Hitch and Sully more or less give up on the interviewer and start just having a conversation with each other
Heres’ the video:
Regardless of whether you agree with these men, they are superb debaters who articulate their ideas well. It’s a shame that the level of our political discourse so seldom rises to this level.
