Quotes Rodney Liked

Christopher Hitchens
“Generally it must be stated that realpolitik has been better at dividing than at ruling. Take it as a whole since Kissinger called on the Shah in 1972, and see what the harvest has been.”

“Control over the production and distribution of oil is the decisive factor in defining who rules whom in the Middle East.”

Christopher Hitchens
“Sarah Palin appears to have no testable core conviction except the belief (which none of her defenders denies that she holds, or at least has held and not yet repudiated) that the end of days and the Second Coming will occur in her lifetime.

Christopher Hitchens
“The point of protesting about 'moral equivalence' is surely not to blur moral choices on ‘our side’. Is it?”
Christopher Hitchens, The Quotable Hitchens from Alcohol to Zionism: The Very Best of Christopher Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens
“Normally, anything done in the name of 'the kids' strikes me as either slightly sentimental or faintly sinister—that redolence of moral blackmail that adheres to certain charitable appeals and certain kinds of politician. (Not for nothing is baby-kissing the synonym for public insincerity.)”
