Re: Projection Alert


An email:

That’s all Hitchens has got? Palin is an “ignoramus”–no, a “proud ignoramus”–because she’s against earmarks and Hitchens thinks she “probably” believes things he doesn’t? Anyone who describes himself as a “prayer warrior” is a bullying theocrat? His last line brings down the hammer on his own toe: “On Nov. 4, anyone who cares for the Constitution has a clear duty to repudiate this wickedness and stupidity.” Because the Constitution takes a firm line against being a prayer warrior?

Yup, that’s his argument–if religious bigotry and snobbery can be so called. And the “bullying” business is just more projection from the atheist Cotton Mather of our benighted age.
