I vote for opebo easily who is actually funny in his extreme atheism while Hitchens was just an annoying prick and is actually an intelligent person with tons of hilarious insight while Hitchens was a neocon warmongering idiot. opebo's hilarious posts on this message board are a far bigger contribution than any of the garbage Hitchens wrote.

Hitchens/Hitchens

I vote for opebo easily who is actually funny in his extreme atheism while Hitchens was just an annoying prick and is actually an intelligent person with tons of hilarious insight while Hitchens was a neocon warmongering idiot. opebo's hilarious posts on this message board are a far bigger contribution than any of the garbage Hitchens wrote.

Funny? Hilarious?!

That's a very perverted sense of humor you've got there.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

No buddy, BRTDs view is the general consensus.

But BTRD, I'm not an 'extreme' atheist, just an atheist.  The whole feeding religious to the lions is more a political preference.

Also, worth noting:

Yes, I very much admired the man - his brain, his writing, his erudition, his courage and his candor. It kind of broke my heart when I learned he had a form of cancer as to which there is but one outcome - death within a year. My Dad had the same kind. I will greatly miss Hitch. He was one of a kind. RIP Hitch.

I don't think he ever really stopped being a Trot in some respects. Not that he was exactly alone in that.

There's an argument to be made that parts of the neoconservative attitude towards one's nation viz-a-viz the rest of the world are conceptually similar to the Trotskyist attitude.

opebo/Hitchens, but I wouldn't be happy about it.

Make a poll, Dibble,

You were losing the poll when I made the comment, and you're losing it even worse now - hell, of those who have voted for you over half still think Hitchens would win. BRTD's view is clearly not the consensus. What point would there be in making a new poll when this one clearly shows you're wrong?

You're aware that Opebo agrees with all of those as well (although he might not have favoured the Iraq war he does favour general bombing of Muslims).

And of course, he's a lot less entertaining or witty than Hitchens.

The problematic part is that he had to be waterboarded before he'd renounce support of torture.

I was under the assumption that becoming a Communist, especially a Trotskyite, was joining the Catholic Church, once in you can't really leave...

Gee, no I didn't know opebo was an atheist. Thanks for informing me!

opebo has praised Muslims for killing US troops and condemned CIA torturers and supports closing Guantanamo, so the other statement isn't correct.

And of course, he's a lot less entertaining or witty than Hitchens.

LOL hardly. Hitchens reminds me of the old Einzige, opebo is funny.

Uh, that's hardly true. I know a lot of ex-Catholics.
