Thanks for the new culture desk assignment, Trunk. Even the title is unreadable.
Rocket Man, I agree with your assessment that the use of the term neo-conservative probably has something to do with frustration on the part of liberals. It’s almost as if the liberals feel that the conservatives brought their big brother into a fight that the liberals had been winning. More accurately, perhaps they feel that the conservative brought in the liberals’ big brother, those bookish Jewish ex-Trotskyites. In reality, although the neo-conservatives added steel and fire power, it was Reagan, I believe, who transformed the conservatives into “tough guys” (which perhaps is one of the reasons the neo-conservatives were attracted to him). But the liberals could never give Reagan credit for anything other than good communications skills.
