It would seem that the Neocons are in quite a state of disarray.

“I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it.”— Voltaire

The case in point:

Writing in the Weekly Standard, “We Blew It” (11/17/2008, Volume 014, Issue 09 ) P.J O’rourke writes

Liberalism had been running wild in the nation since the Great Depression. At the end of the Carter administration we had it cornered in one of its dreadful low-income housing projects or smelly public parks or some such place, and we held the Taser gun in our hand, pointed it at the beast’s swollen gut, and didn’t pull the trigger. Liberalism wasn’t zapped and rolled away on a gurney and confined somewhere until it expired from natural causes such as natural law or natural rights.

Hopefully such rhetoric (and massive, over-the-top misframing of the issues) will lead to neocons flooding away from the party of the conservatives in droves. Then perhaps true conservatives can recapture the Grand Old Party and it can find its way again once more. One can only hope.
