The George (Bush) Costanza Doctrine

The Financial Times has this great piece by Michael Fullilove (yes, that's his name) on the similarities of the Seinfeld character George Costanza's "opposite" doctrine with Bush's Iraq policy. That is, do the counter-intuitive thing, since you've been wrong so often. Example: after being attacked by a non-State terrorist group (al Qaeda), make war on a state that had nothing to do with the attack (Iraq). (Illustration: Pete Murphey/Murph Productions)
