Hitchens Takes On Wolfowitz, Slams Dowd in the Bargain

When the great Christopher Hitchens weighs in a subject, it's always worth the time to read, but when he takes a shot at Maureen Dowd's annoying 'Wolfie' habbit (calling her a savant! aaahhh, sweet justice!), you have the makings of a classic. Hitchens says Wolfowitz is a softie, too bleeding heart even for his tastes, reputation notwithstanding, and ends in the inemitable Hitch style:
...with the Wolfowitz and even the John Bolton nomination to the United Nations, the Bush administration retains its capacity to startle, mainly because it has redefined the lazy term "conservative" to mean someone who is impatient with the status quo.
