Hitchens's two cents: Gore "nuts"June 7, 2004 2:25 PM EDT ››› NICOLE CASTA
Author Christopher Hitchens joined the chorus of right-wing pundits purporting to diagnose former Vice President Al Gore's psychiatric state following Gore's May 26 speech about U.S. policy in Iraq. Hitchens, appearing on MSNBC's Scarborough Country on June 3, said, "Al Gore's been making speeches that make him look and sound completely nuts."
Hitchens has authored numerous books, including No One Left to Lie To: The Values of the Worst Family (2000), which was written to smear both former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton, and No One Left to Lie To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton (1999). Hitchens is a contributor to Slate.com's "Fighting Words" column; writes a monthly books essay for The Atlantic Monthly; and is a columnist for Vanity Fair.
