Axis of funny

I was in the bookstore this evening. Near the checkout, they have some magazines. One of these magazines is the current issue of The Economist. Its cover story, about Tony Blair and our own Beloved Emperor, is called...wait for it...Axis of Feeble.


  • The cover was indeed hilarious. The actual article was less so, criticizing Bush for "incompetence in execution" rather than being fundamentally wrong on how to act in the world. For example: the article seems to support a military response to jihadist terrorism, while I'm desperately wishing it were still being treated as the virulent organized crime problem which it so obviously is. The military is not the right tool for the job of suppressing terrorism. International, cooperative law enforcement is. Argh!

    So, enjoy the headline, but beware the article.
