Tony Blair and Osama bin Laden?

I am simply flabbergasted. It is true that this kind of totally meaningless tripe routinely appears in Italy's major newspapers, but this is really the outside of enough. It is bad enough that often editorials and reviews in Italian papers are filled with incomprehensible and totally meaningless pseudo-intellectual speak, but this article is also highly insulting.
More importantly, how can a rational and thinking person consider this a remotely reasonable, valid and useful analogy? I literally don't know whether to laugh or cry - this is the Italian intelligentsia's idea of interesting commentary? See
Normblog's comments.
