Why Hitch RULES!

My challenge: name an ethical statement or action, made or performed by a person of faith, that could not have been made or performed by a nonbeliever. I have since asked this question at every stop and haven’t had a reply yet.

Olasky’s book on presidential morality (which sadly was written before this president took office) says that George Washington won the Revolutionary War because he forbade drinking and swearing in the ranks of his army, whereas the British forces were awash in immorality. I argue that the war was won largely by the French, who were not strangers to wine or oaths, and that the American troops at Valley Forge were much inspired by Thomas Paine, who may not have cursed all that much but who never left the brandy bottle alone and who thought that Christianity was a joke. Moreover, the Brits—indicted by Olasky for their indulgence in adultery and even buggery—did manage to hold on to Canada, India, much of the Caribbean, and much of Africa in spite of divine disapproval. “God on Our Side” is one of the oldest and weakest arguments in human history.

God Bless Me, It’s a Best-Seller!

“Useless Yuppies? Say ‘Hello’ to Frick and Frack!”

Lordy, this coulda been the bad boys’ ultimate moment:

For New Yorkers without the time, space, or willingness to commit to owning a dog, a new share program launching in Manhattan next month offers pets for rent.

Singles who don’t own pets but want excuses to chat up dog lovers at city parks, for example, can break the ice with Jackpot, a midnight-black Labrador retriever billed as a “happy dog who loves everyone,” who can be a best friend for a month, a week, or an hour.

Unleash the Beasties on Manhattan weenies? Priceless.

Pet-Renting Concept Termed ‘Shocking’

Mucking Around in Other People’s Comments

First I tried knocking down the idea that Steve Harrison, son of Brooklyn, had any chance in hell of beating local Republican robot Vito Fossella, and was met with pablum.

Next, I took umbrage at Mr. Snitch’s insolence at suggesting Hoboken…Hoboken! was the heart of pizza spinning in the metro area in a thread about Ann Althouse landing at Brooklyn Law on a visiting professor gig.

I’m telling you, folks, I am seriously frickin’ bored these days if this is what I’m doing for dumb fun.
