Even God deserves better

The other night, I attended a debate at the 92nd Street Y between Christopher Hitchens and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on the question of the existence of God. As everyone who agrees with me agrees, it was a ridiculously lopsided match up, with Hitch taking command from the start and never relenting.

This is the only clip available so far and it doesn't exactly capture the mood of the debate because it shows Boteach in sermon mode rather than argument mode, which is what he was usually in. Still, Hitchens has a moment that was pretty typical for him when he says, "We've already answered that question. He to the best of his ability."

Did the moderator name check your contest or is there an actual New Yorker magazine that has cartoons in it?
