Christopher Hitchens On Porn, Cheating & Women

By

Christopher Hitchens
The late, great Christopher Hitchens had a scathing wit on everything from politics to cheating.

Christopher Hitchens's most valuable asset was his scathing wit. From his famous digs at religion to his humiliating takedown of Sarah Palin — and even some snippy comments aimed at cats — read the brilliant writer's most incendiary jabs.

On Sarah Palin: "She's got no charisma of any kind [but] I can imagine her being mildly useful to a low-rank porn director."

The Leonard Lopate Show, June 2010

On hypocrites: "Nothing optional — from homosexuality to adultery — is ever made punishable unless those who do the prohibiting (and exact the fierce punishment) have a repressed desire to participate."

God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, 2007

On women: "Why are women, who have the whole male world at their mercy, not funny?"

Vanity Fair, 2007
