If you think Hitches is a neo-con, I don't think you know what a neo-con is. Read his article on the recurring importance of Marx in the March issue of the Atlantic. He certainly doesn't sound like a neo-liberal Friedmanite, there. In fact his dismantling of the contemporary political understanding of economics makes him sound more like Slavoj Zizek--or even Naomi Klein. Neo-con? Not even a little bit. Hitchens is nowhere on the political spectrum for a sustained period of time.

I'm not entirely convinced that the whole Michael Savage character isn't just an act. You'd have to have a pretty radical transformation to go from the North Beach crowd he used to run with to the shit he says on his radio show now.
It has the smack of opportunism to it, but I don't know how that matters. As far as the world is concerned, you pretty much are what you do.

Yeah, I wasn't saying that as if it should have an affect one way or another on this UK thing.

If it's not Fred Savage, it's not newsworthy.
