HITCHENS GIVES BILL MAHER'S AUDIENCE the finger. Should things go badly with the war, Maher's audience -- and, for that matter, Maher himself -- will be cited by historians as evidence of the American opposition's unseriousness.
UPDATE: Rand Simberg emails: "I suspect that historians will judge Democrats unserious regardless of the war's outcome. In fact, if it goes badly enough, history of the era will be written in Arabic." And even those historians won't respect Maher and his audience, though they may be grateful for their petty Bush-hatred.
ANOTHER UPDATE: The entire Maher show is reviewed here.
MORE: Radley Balko says that Rand Simberg is objectively pro-terrorist. Next he'll be questioning his patriotism!
