Former lefty who is now a “temporary ally” to neocons blasts the recently departed Jerry Falwell:

3:02 mark:

Cooper: Whether you agree or not with his reading of the bible, you don’t think he was sincere in what he spoke?

Hitchens: No. I think he was a conscious charlatan, and bully, and fraud. I think if he had read the Bible at all – and I would doubt that he could actually read any long book…at all – I would think he did so in the most hucksterish…as we say “bible pounding” way.

(ht AMERICAblog) Also from Aravosis is the fact that re: Reagan’s victory, Falwall was like the rooster who took credit for the sun rising.
