The Iron Lady's Sex Appeal

Though I agree with his anti-relig­ion views, the more I learn about Hitchens, the less I admire him. This essay, (the part concerning his encounter with "Dame Attila" is not unfamiliar but I still find it appalling!­) only makes my doubts more pronounced­.

And his "grudging" admiration for Thatcher is completely beyond my understand­ing. Is this an example of his attraction to dominatric­es?

I am getting to see him, more and more, as the loud-mouth­ed egomaniac rather than the "brilliant thinker" he has generally been called!
