No One Left To Lie To: The Values of the Worst Family

No One Left To Lie To: The Values of the Worst Family - Christopher Hitchens Read this one shortly after venting my frustrations with all things Clinton to a friend. No one does a take-down quite like Hitchens (for whom I have complicated feelings, possessing a brilliant mind that turned ugly in later years [partly due perhaps to years of alcoholism, but that's a separate issue]) but his vitriol gets the better of him on this one, often obscuring his very valid points about Clinton's war crimes, sex crimes, false promises, and disgusting tactics. Hitchens at certain points defends politicians against dissection of their character only to vigorously do so himself, and, let's be honest, Hitchens himself is hardly one to point the moral finger.

That being said, it was pretty satisfying, especially for someone like me who is just not sure she can stomach voting for Hillary.
