    Why would it have been a hoot? As for the article, I thought it was funny of this article to say neo-cons want to lob nukes into Iran when Obama just said that all options were on the table regarding Iran. Obviously the Daily Beast doesn't understand that a neo-con is just a progressive Republican.

    Because to watch Michele be taken to school would of been hilarious. Also, you seem to have the words "Progressive" and "Republicans" mixed up.

    Neo-cons are progressive Republicans. Progressives have taken over the Democratic and Republican parties. There are few if any real conservatives or liberals left.

    Neo-Cons are certainly not progressive. In fact, when it comes to social issues, Neo-Cons run directly against the idea of progressive policies.

    Well that's because "progressives" aren't actually progressive, the same way the old Federalist Party wasn't actually promoting federalism. It's a misnomer. However, progressives advocate big government, the difference between Republican and Democrat progressives is what part of government they want to grow.
