Christopher Hitchens was a great warrior, a magnificent orator, a pugilist and a gentleman. He was kind, but he took no prisoners when arguing with idiots.
There's Insanity on Both Sides of the Debate When You Argue with an Idiot.
Do not be intimidated by a smart person. It is easier to debate a smart person than to argue with an idiot.
Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they're yours.
Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.
With all due disrespect...
Sir Topless Bottomley
