Just for the Record

Since Oregon’s own special little guy Peter DeFazio is making headlines by calling people “little pointy-headed neocon[s] with grand ideas about the future of transportation” with “bizarre, neocon view[s] of transportation, ” I thought I’d post up this fairly succinct explanation of basic neoconservative ideas.

It’s not long, it’s not detailed, and it’s not difficult reading. So if you’re one of those people who’s surprised when I tell you that the definition of “neocon” isn’t synonymous with “Nazi”, “Republican”, “imperialist warmonger”, or “someone I disagree with”, then maybe it’s time to take a couple of minutes and read that article. Heck, you might even come away knowing more about “the neocons” than Peter DeFazio who, by any definition, is a bit of a wanker.

    I wasn’t making any judgments pro or con about Kristol or neoconservatism in general. I just linked to that article because a) it’s informative and succinct and b) Kristol is a pretty authoritative neoconservative voice.

    I guess also for the record: I’m not a neoconservative, and I don’t much care for Irving Kristol either.

    Peter DeFazio’s still a wanker, though.

    Say what you want about DeFazio, (I don’t think he is a wanker) Irving Kristol is a douchebag.
