The snark!

It's so amusing when The Guardian gets in a sidelong snark. In this article on the incoming UN Secretary General, they end with the following observation:

The Bush White House is a classic study in the arrogance of power. Deluding itself into believing that it was capable of enforcing its will unilaterally, America's axis of incompetence - Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld - blundered into Iraq. In doing so, it inflicted huge damage on the UN - and on America as well.

That's a drawing I used to do as my signature back in the days before Usenet.

The article is, in general, a comment about Ban, and the last paragraph, a diversion into the stupidity of BushCo, is of itself a bit of snarkiness, but referring to them as "the axis of incompetence" is pure snark.
