The Next Symbol

With the fall of the Soviet Union, the world was left without a cold war nemesis for many years. The void is arguably still there, although “Muslim countries” have essentially taken its place as the nemesis of the West, at least in the eyes of radical conservatives (if we’re to believe the blogosphere and airhead news stations)....

The Soviets and Bush both earned their roles of global scorn buckets, but their disappearances leave an uncertain future for haters and alarmists everywhere.

Who or what will become the next symbol of global tyranny and mismanagement? Is Obama doomed to fill this role, or do you think it will be someone else? I think it will easily go to some figure other than Obama or someone in his government. The question is, will it be someone already familiar to Canadians and Americans, or will it be a new creation? {full post}
