Yellow Dog Blog has an hilarious account of a "debate" between Christopher Hitchens and Scott Ritter (which I found via Crooks and Liars).

A choice excerpt of Ritter to Hitchens:
"This is a war that's not worth the life of one American because it's a war based on a lie. And no amount of revisionism will make those lies true," he said. "And if you support this ridiculous notion that the ends justifies the means, then come up here, throw your passport on the stage and get the hell out of my country because that's un-American."
Ouch. And that's putting it mildly. Yellow Dog Blog has more.
