Christopher Hitchens doesn't write enough. Maybe once or twice a month he sits down and comments on what's happening in the world.

Yesterday, he decided it was time to call a spade a spade. Sparked by Teresa's insane comment that she wouldn't be surprised if Osama "appeared in the next month", Hitchens went off:

What will it take to convince these people that this is not a year, or a time, to be dicking around? Americans are patrolling a front line in Afghanistan, where it would be impossible with 10 times the troop strength to protect all potential voters on Oct. 9 from Taliban/al-Qaida murder and sabotage. We are invited to believe that these hard-pressed soldiers of ours take time off to keep Osama Bin Laden in a secret cave, ready to uncork him when they get a call from Karl Rove? For shame.
