These are fantastic.

Reagan's Obit:

He was as dumb as a stump. He could have had anyone in the world to dinner, any night of the week, but took most of his meals on a White House TV tray. He had no friends, only cronies. His children didn’t like him all that much. He met his second wife—the one that you remember—because she needed to get off a Hollywood blacklist and he was the man to see. Year in and year out in Washington, I could not believe that such a man had even been a poor governor of California in a bad year, let alone that such a smart country would put up with such an obvious phony and loon.

Living ****-drip Christopher Hitchens is no longer living at age 62, having lost his long battle with cancer he put into his body with cigarettes and booze. He has become a corpse. He supported imperialistic wars, he believed women to be inferior, he was an outspoken anti-Muslim, and was generally ill-regarded by whoever was not busy smoking drugs and painting fug OFF PAKI on walls.

Besides him being wrong on the Iraq war, I see no issues with any of those things.

also wrong on torture.

well until he let himself be waterboarded for 5 seconds and then acted like he had experienced some sort of life changing event when in reality the only reason he did it was because he looked at it as his way of distancing himself from the neoconservatism he had gravitated toward in his later years

i mean if you like him because he was an atheist and you're an atheist and whatever, that's fine. but he was a pretty shitty dude all-in-all

Irrespective of his political views, many of which I disagree with, i'd make the claim he did as much if not more more to advance the empowerment of women and the downtrodden as any his contemporaries, religious or not.
