The past week may be noted as The Week They Lost It, as in lost control of their words. Who are they?
First nominee is Christopher Hitchens who lost it commenting on the death of Jerry Falwell. (see YouTube video below:)
His comments are utterly indefensible even for his point of view. He lost it.
Second, if accounts are to be trusted, Sen John McCain lost it when confronted on the McCain-Kennedy Immigration bill, hurling unprintable words at some fellow-senators dissented from the bill. His pursuit of the presidency is over.
Third, former President Jimmy Carter lost it. He called the Bush Administration "the worst in history."
The Carter-Clinton effort to bring Baptists together for a image-scrubbing event in early 2008 seems more and more incredulous and more and more politically motivated.
