David Corn has a pretty good critique of Fred the Neocon, but he doesn’t delve deeply enough for my taste. You don’t have to go back to early days of the Iraq war to find Fred’s sympathy with aggressive, interventionist foreign policy. He has been declaring it for all to hear for the past few months. His recent London speech is a good place to start, and one of his foreign policy consultants (her name starts with a ’c’ and ends with “heney”) is another clue. Fred is, as I have called him before, a kind of “deep fried Cheney.” Corn is absolutely correct that neocons can have no complaints about the four leading GOP candidates. Come to think of it, they cannot really have many complaints about any of the candidates, except for Ron Paul (obviously).
