Time Magazine's Late But Welcome R.I.P.

Time Magazine has announced "The End of Cowboy Diplomacy".

Says Drudge:
In the span of four years, the Bush Administration has been forced to rethink the pre-emptive "Bush doctrine" by which it hoped to remake the world, as the strategy's ineffectiveness was exposed by the very policies it prescribed, TIME's Mike Allen and Romesh Ratnesar report in this weeks cover story on 'The End of Cowboy Diplomacy' on newsstands Monday, July 9th.
Referred to as the "swaggering Commander in Chief", the article says that Bush's approach fit with Bush's personal style, his self-professed proclivity to dispense with the nuances of geopolitics and go with his gut.

"Go with his gut". That would be a gut full of tacos and enchiladas, garnered with a hot, spicy salsa, the pre-eminent mixture on which to make world-shaking decisions.

What we all need now is for this swaggering, go-with-my-gut drugstore cowboy to ride off into the sunset, and take his herd of neocon range scruff with him.
