Maybe if he had actually quit the revolutionary left he wouldn't have to split such tiny hairs. We're engaged in a life or death struggle with Islamic Facists and the Time's chosen designator deserves a whole column? Where's the dedication for that all encompasing single issue? You know, O'Reilly insisted it was an insurgency instead of something else. You just can't please anyone.

It's funny, because when I hear "insurgent" I think of a person taking up violent guerilla tactics against a civilian government. As Horowitz could tell you, though, leftists never lose their attraction to violent upheaval just for violent upheaval's sake. Maybe this is why for Hitch, unlike most civilized people, the notion of "insurgent" isn't "axiomatically pejorative" enough. Good lord, man, we know they're evil. It doesn't matter what you call them.
