  •  Neo-Cons took over the republicans first... (none)
    Now they're taking over the Democrats.
    •  Actually Most of Them BEGAN As Dems (4.00)
      Paul Wolfowitz worked for Sen. Henry "Scoop" Jackson (D-WA), the most important Democratic hawk in the early 1970s, and he's pretty typical.  Jeanne Kirkpatrick was a conservative Democrat, as were (at one time or another) Irving Kristol, Francis Fukuyama, and most of the Straussians (with the notable exception of Harry Jaffa and some of the other west coast crowd).  Most of them only became Republicans during the Reagan era.  

      Even those many of the Neo-Cons who started off on the left became conservative long before they became Republican.

      •  Kiss the ass that sits (none)
        on the throne.

        That's the basic stategy of these goons.  Someone like Horowitz is just totally transparent:  the only consistency to his politics is shrill attacks on those who stand in the way of whatever political wave he thinks he can ride to the halls of power.  Wolfowitz, Kirkpatrick et al were Dems because Dems controlled the Congress.  They'd have joined the Silly Party if they thought it would get them access to a committee chair...
