Ah, that makes more sense
I was not alone in my surprise that Slate listed Christopher Hitchens as having endorsed Kerry for president. And my surprise was well founded, it turns out. Hitchens leads off his column of today
in Slate with an editorial correction by Slate apologizing for the mischaracterization:
Correction, Nov. 1, 2004: Due to an editing error, Christopher Hitchens' entry in the "Slate Votes" survey was mistakenly classified as an endorsement of John Kerry. As Hitchens explains below, he did not intend his contribution as a statement of support for either candidate. Slate apologizes to Hitchens for this error. Click here to read the corrected survey.
Of course, supporting neither candidate is not quite what I'd hoped for but you can also read this article at the Nation
if you'd like to console yourself that he actually has endorsed Bush in print.
