From an informal Christopher Hitchens interview on election night. On the prospect of George Allen losing his race in Virginia:
"I... think it would be very nice for Mr. Allen in Virginia to lose. He needs to relax and find something else to do in his life."
But the best line about the electorate, said without cracking a hint of smile, in the classic dry, droll, English, self evident manner:
"By all means, stupid people should be represented, but not by stupid people."
