Christopher Hitchens Thinks It's A Waste Of Time To Fund Homeland Security

A picture named Hitch_Hillary.jpg

On Scarborough last night, Christopher hates Hillary so much that when she makes perfect sense it causes him to unravel:

SEN. HILLARY CLINTON (D), NEW YORK: But the fact is, the president's budget calls for a $50 million cut in what we appropriated last year. Last year, although Chuck and I wanted more money and the Senate unanimously passed a bill for $570 million, we got $150 million out of the Congress.
