Christopher Hitchens gives Bill Maher's audience the finger:

Apparently Hitch had had enough of the automaton audience clapping and cheering at every anti-Bush quip Maher offered, including a ludicrous comparison to Iran's president:

Hitchens: “He (Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) says the Messiah is about to come back. Who's looking for a war here?”

Maher: “So does George Bush, by the way [audience applause]. That's not facetious [audience applause continues].”

Hitchens: “That's not facetious. Your audience, which will clap at apparently anything, is frivolous. [oohs and groans from audience, Hitchens gives them the finger] Fuck you, fuck you. [groans continue]”

Maher: “I was just saying what the President of Iran and the President of America have in common is that they both are a little too comfortable with the idea of the world coming to an end.”

Hitchens: “Cheer yourself up like that. The President has said, quite a great contrast before the podium of the Senate, I think applauded by most present, in his State of the Union address, that we support the democratic movement of the Iranian people to be free of theocracy -- not that we will impose ourselves on them, but that if they fight for it we're on their side. That seems to be the right position to take, jeer all you like.”

The problem with Bush and Iran is that he killed the democratic movement in Iran with his crazy axis of evil thing.

Bush is the best thing that ever happened to Islamofacists.

Jeer all you like, Jason. Just like they jeered Churchill's Iron Curtain speech, and Reagan's Evil Empire speech. Ooh ooh, don't call a spade a spade, you'll just make the evil dictators even more evil!
