Christopher Hitchens’ Revelatory Memoir

From his new memoir, coming soon to a bookstore in your town square:

”Every now and then, even though I was by then fixed on the pursuit of young women, a mild and mildly enjoyable relapse would occur and I suppose that I can ‘claim’ this … of two young men who later became members of Margaret Thatcher’s government. For this very reason I can’t really give any more names.”

This may be a wild claim, or the honest truth. Hitchens sure knows how to be outrageous, as is shown by his testimony in the upcoming book that the 42nd President of the United States was fond of pot brownies:

Hitchens confirms that Clinton never inhaled; instead, he writes, he consumed pot brownies:

“He preferred, like many another marijuana enthusiast, to take his dope in the form of large handfuls of cookies and brownies,” Hitchens writes.

There’s nothing too shocking about that, but it is humorous. Anyways, if true, it’s unfortunate and hypocritical that Bill Clinton accelerated the drug war during his presidency.
