Queer eye for the picket line

So it's come to this: in defense of Bush's war in Iraq, Christopher Hitchens is reduced to insulting the appearance of those who protested Ahmad Chalabi's presence in our country's capital.

Famous for his own grooming-impairment affliction, Hitchens expands the length of his column if not the depth of his argument with observations about the "exceptionally moth-eaten and shabby picket line outside Ahmad Chalabi's event on Wednesday" and the "gargoyle picket line" mounted by "the American left."

Except for the proper hyphenation and the correct spelling of "gargoyle," this is keyboarding worthy of Jonah Goldberg.

Isn't it about time for Hitchens to rush to Patrick Fitzgerald with sworn affidavits from himself and his obliging spouse stating that they bumped into Joseph Wilson inside a liquor store and Wilson, whom they hardly knew, babbled on and on about his covert CIA babe of a wife?
