Chain-Smoking Cassandra

Hitchens has no patience for either Obama's church or the cult of Obama:

To have accepted Obama's smooth apologetics is to have lowered one's own pre-existing standards for what might constitute a post-racial or a post-racist future. It is to have put that quite sober and realistic hope, meanwhile, into untrustworthy and unscrupulous hands. And it is to have done this, furthermore, in the service of blind faith. Mark my words: This disappointment is only the first of many that are still to come.

It occurs to me this post title might draw hits from smoking fetish pervs. My apologies to them in advance. Reality is weird; the Internet is distilled reality.
