In Which Both Hitchens Brothers Are Shown To Be Delusional

First, Hitch gets a quick case of buyers' remorse in Barack to Reality. Having sucker-punched the yearners for liberty in the Muslim world in order to save humanity from Sarah Palin, he has the nerve to pretend he's back on the human freedom bandwagon.
I might possibly have voted for them all the same, clothes pin clamped over my nose in the voting booth, if only because of the crucial struggle for a free Iraq and an autonomous Kurdistan. And, in such a case, I would have been very annoyed at the suggestion that my vote was a racist one.
Ah, but we see that free Iraq did not win his battle of conscience, did it?

Then Peter Hitchens (the Christian one) laments The Night We Lost America, with much of which I'm in sympathy --this for example:
The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.
I really don’t see how the Obama devotees can ever in future mock the Moonies, the Scientologists or people who claim to have been abducted in flying saucers. This is a cult like the one which grew up around Princess Diana, bereft of reason and hostile to facts.
But has he ever been here?
the US is just as segregated as it was before Martin Luther King – in schools, streets, neighbourhoods, holidays, even in its TV-watching habits and its choice of fast-food joint. The difference is that it is now done by unspoken agreement rather than by law.
If Mr Obama’s election had threatened any of that, his feel-good white supporters would have scuttled off and voted for John McCain, or practically anyone.
I confess I did not see the old saw that the US is incorrigibly racist coming from him. I wonder how such a racist society could have been his last best hope?
