Hitchens on Obama: He’s No King

Chirstopher Hitchens

In an article posted on Slate yesterday, former First Friday guest and all-around cool guy Christopher Hitchens gives his take on Obama and the issue of race.  His last line may just be his best:

“So amnesiac have we become, indeed, that we fall into paroxysms of adulation for a ward-heeling Chicago politician who does not complete, let alone “transcend,” the work of Dr. King; who hasn’t even caught up to where we were four decades ago; and who, by his chosen associations, negates and profanes the legacy that was left to all of us.”
