    I think she rocks, not only because she's smart and sassy, but because she offers and quick, concise and correct insight into the mind of the American neocon. She recently completed the Proust Questionnaire in Vanity Fair magazine. Two of her answers summed up neocons. Note, she doesn't mention the rabid rigth, but her answers decribe them (well on this board anyway) to a T....Allie, Willow, Cesspit, Tank, T, Bigreb

    What is the trait you most deplore in others?
    People who are proud of their ignorance.

    What is it that you most dislike?
    People who mock education as elitist.

    I'm not a neocon by an stretch, but what do those statements have to do with neoconservatism?

    Any messageboard I have ever been on - if anyone on the left shows a smidgeon of intelligence, or announces their college bona fides, just watch them get shouted down by the neocon peanut gallery....Education is anethema to what they believe in...

    The Shrub has the same college bona fides and that didn't keep hacks like you from shouting him down as a detached idiot.

    Cuts both ways, Bubba.

    so these "uneducated" people just happen to believe in spreading democracy, "preventive" war, and wide open borders?

    Well, he is an ijit, of that there is no doubt. But there are plenty of intelligent conservatives. But I'm talking about those specifically on these boards who mock others who have education. Those I listed have done that in the past..

    That's a pretty simplistic overview to some very complicated issues...

    It's not being educated that some on the right mock as being elitist....it's just those on the left who have a view that only those who have gained their enlightenment from some ivy league institute are truly educated, and have little appreciation for those who value self-education and a desire to always be learning.
