Maclean’s flap

Maclean’s, true to form lately, is at the centre of controversy again. This time it’s in the U.S., because of a magazine cover depicting U.S. President George W. Bush dressed as Saddam Hussein, including a moustache, beret and military attire.

Here’s the site (CP) story.

USA Today took up the issue on a blog. Lamented one commenter, “How did we go from a noble task of liberating millions of Iraqis under a brutal regime headed by a madman to the cover of this perverted magazine with its twisted logic? How can anyone sympathize with this pathetic twisted view on Iraq?”   Answered another commenter: “I’m surprised it took so long for someone to come up with such an appropriate concept.”  It goes on, of course, into the predictable attacks and debate on Canada’s (ir)responsibility. Yawn.
