As I recall - I don't have the energy to read through 95 posts or whatever the fuck it is - what set Jesse off was my comment that while I admired Ellen she was a rather difficult person. Which is incontrovertibly true. How does that compare to some of the comments I've read about Hitchens today, which included celebrations of his death?
