cartoon by Kevin Kallaugher for The Economist

Wonderful Op-Ed In The Economist titled,

"Sidelined by reality: The neocons are suffering one humiliation after another"

The whole thing is just packed full of intelligent snark, so go read it.

Just 'cause I can, here are some choice bits.

Mr Cheney is proving no more destructible than Lord Voldemort.


But the movement's implosion is nevertheless astonishing. One neocon sums up the prevailing mood in the movement.

The neocons are a “laughing stock”. Their “embrace of power” has been “a disaster”. Once upon a time they commanded an audience among Arab democrats and European conservatives. But now they cannot make themselves heard above the din of criticisms of Iraq.
The “surge” is a desperate response to failure.

Many people see Messrs Kristol and Krauthammer as exhibits in a Ripley's Believe It or Not exhibition: they marvel that they can ever have been so influential, rather than want to follow their advice again.

There is no by-line, so I don't know who to credit it to, but they do deserve credit.

Great reading to start your weekend off with a smile.
