Hitch and the Nazis: Now the story can be told 

Christopher Hitchens apparently hates Syrian Nazis almost as much as Jake Elwood hates Illinois Nazis.

Several days ago I heard from a blogger friend that Christopher Hitchens, in Beirut for a visit, had defaced a poster of the Syrian Nazi party and had been roughed up for his trouble. I promised to keep the story confidential on the theory that it was Hitchens' to tell, but now that it is out I consider my duty done. Ace's version lines up well with the version I heard from my little bird.

MORE: Heh. Yeah, right. As if Hitchens would drink Jaeger. He'd rather be waterboarded.
