AXIS OF WEASELS UPDATE: This article reports a sign at the antiwar protests last weekend reading “Bush, Cheney, Rumsfield – Axis of Weasel” — meaning that Scott Ott didn’t come up with the term first. But, of course, that makes the Scrappleface use of the term all the more impressive: not just creating a meme, but turning the opposition’s term against it, to the point where only geeky bloggers such as myself note the prior usage.

UPDATE: “Axis of Weasels” has made Maureen Dowd’s column for tomorrow. She also has a kind-of retraction of the Jefferson Davis wreath story. I’m calling that two triumphs for the blogosphere, with extra points for degree-of-difficulty.
