Six Degrees

Surely you remember the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon? The automated Oracle of Bacon has actually gone through IMDB and calculated a Bacon score for celebrities.

No one has yet produced a comparable political version of the Bacon index. Perhaps the time has come for The Six Degrees Of Bush’s War, where any random world event can be tied within six leaps of logic to the decision to invade Iraq The scores assigned can be called a Bushit score, which should make Bush haters happy and just confuse Bush supporters (as it is a term mostly unfamiliar to the right). Just like the Bacon index the best practically attainable Bushit score is a 1.

The UK Guardian scores a Bushit of 1 with this headline – The victims of the tsunami pay the price of war on Iraq.
