Christopher Hitchens has said repeatedly that he is not a conservative or a Republican. I know this because I have seen him on several news programs and they make the same mistake as you do: just because someone supports the war in Iraq (as he did) does not make them a conservative or a Republican, and he loudly proclaims this. He used to consider himself a Marxist and I would qualify him as a libertarian, but admittedly he has never said that he is. I think he considers himself outside of any political ideology.
Hahaha I certainly don't think that he finds women inherently inferior, but I went ballistic when he said that women aren't funny! I love Christopher Hitchens, but that's just a little too much of a chauvinistic statement. Lol Roseanne, Carol Burnett, Betty White, Tina Fey, Debra Wilson (MadTV), Margaret Cho, and I could go on. But we all have our opinions on humor I guess.
