Vanity Fair Starts New Feature "Hitch Bitch" To Field Hitchens Hate Mail

Posted: Updated:

Portfolio.com's Jeff Bercovici writes today about 'Hitch Bitch,' Vanity Fair's new feature that gives readers the chance to take on the magazine's controversial columnist.

"No V.F. contributing editor arouses more reader ire than our tireless columnist Christopher Hitchens," reads the explanatory note. "VF Daily will post a selection of the sharpest, snappiest, and/or most elegantly reasoned letters, but keep in mind that what you submit may be edited. Please include your full name and hometown--and please, don't write anything you wouldn't want your mother to read."

And the announcement comes not a moment too soon. Hitchens appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" today to critique Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech last night. "You know what struck me as very important and slightly sinister?" says Hitchens, "When she said we won Florida and Michigan." Hitchens notes that the primaries both states were counted out by the Democratic National Committee. "She's like a wounded puma," he muses, "going to fight till the very end for the last delegate even in states that have been written off for that purpose."

Clinton supporters, send those letters in to hitchbitch@vf.com.
