Hitchens debates some guy no one cares about
(here’s the YouTube link for those of you on mobiles)
You might recall Rabbi Boteach as the annoying idiot who doesn’t do more than just make statements without any evidence. In fact, his first turn at the microphone is spent simply insulting Hitchens and his book, and he doesn’t say one thing of value. The most hilarious/tragically ironic part of the video occurs about 46 minutes in when he accuses Hitchens of character assassination not 10 minutes after having done the very same thing (and he continues to do so for the rest of his speech).
**NOTE** I don’t know how often this guy has to try to talk himself up and talk Hitchens down, but it was a lot (accusing the man of not knowing a subject like Judaism is probably not a good idea). I felt like Boteach spends most of his time trying to convince everyone that they should buy his shitty book. Maybe if I run out of toilet paper, I’ll consider it.
