Favorite Hitchens Antic #891

At the National Book Awards dinner last night.

Favorite bit:
Asked in an e-mail whether Mr. Shelton was telling the truth, Mr. Hitchens responded with an oblique but suggestive message: "The standard of fact-checking for Vanity Fair articles is very high."
EDIT: This kind of nonsense does him no favors. I recall Alexander Cockburn's remark in that New Yorker profile of Hitchens last year: when Hitch gets drunk he starts making kissy faces at his male friends.
