Video: Hitchens vs. D'Souza
The above illustration was made by artist and comedian Iszi Lawrence.
It seems as if Christopher Hitchens has engaged in as many debates regarding his book god is not Great as there have been presidential debates recently, so pointing out one of them isn't exactly a monumental act. His recent debate with Dinesh D'Souza, however, stands out because he doesn't go against the likes of Al Sharpton or Sean Hannity but instead someone who is Hitchens' intellectual peer (if not his superior). With as formidable an opponent as D'Souza, it's no wonder that Hitchens starts off with a light personal insult towards him (and anyone else who "actually believes this stuff"). It's worth watching to anyone interested in the topic.
