Here’s a comment made by an ever-so-brave “anonymous” person a few posts down (the ‘tinfoil hat’ one)

Two years ago, I resigned from the Republican Party. The reason is simple, I refuse to be a sheeple. The Bush Administration is a farce and even more alarming is that the so-called religious community continues to fall down and worship him. Doug Powers is just another sick-o neocon bootlicker.

This is why I like to keep the “allow anonymous posts” switch in the “on” position. Otherwise fun comments like this wouldn’t often appear, since these types rarely have the guts to actually print their name.

In case you don’t know what “neocon” is, it’s some sort of paleocon Prozac. Paleocons (I can throw out vague but impressive sounding labels too) say “neocon” twice a day, wash it down with water, and it’s somehow supposed to relieve their rage that Pat Buchanan never got elected president. It doesn’t work, but at least they’re trying.

By the way, anonymous Einstein, the term “neoconservative” comes from the late 60’s and 70’s, and was reserved for former leftists, mostly Jewish, who grew weary of their party(s). I can assure you, I fit none of these categories.

Sure, today the term is misapplied and overused, but I hold it to its root meaning.

Now if you don’t mind, I’ve got some boots to lick. They’re on a chocolate bunny, but technically, the anonymous comment wizard is correct.
