The numbing predictability of it. Unfortunately I can't link to this, but the main political cartoon in today's Guardian has Bush with a missile-shaped "inhumane dog controller" in his hands and Blair as a lap-dog looking up at him with a missile-shaped bone in his mouth. Sharon is a fat hound wallowing in blood behind Bush and Hussein a flea-bitten cur in the far background.

Rather than read more grim stories about the New World Order, I recommend you scoot over to the Austin Chronicle and tickle Elvis.
