So America's favorite war criminal appeared before John McCain's Senate subcommittee today. When protesters shouted that Henry Kissinger is, in point of fact, a war criminal, the man who was seen during the 2000 Republican primary as the mature, reasonable one (which, sure, but a) consider the alternative; and b) a lot can change in fifteen years) announced took the time to announce, "Get of of here, you low-life scum." Sadly, he didn't follow it up with "Please site down, Dr. Kissinger, I didn't mean you."

On another note, Henry Kissinger still draws free breath, and Christopher Hitchens has been dead going on four years. The universe can go screw itself.
