Levin on Brooks

Yah--the David Brooks who would re-write 'conservatism' to Brooks' own specifications.

Brooks wants to redefine conservatism, but he's not going to. He has written about a McCain-Lieberman Third Party ticket for a few years now, asserting that the war in Iraq would be the overriding issue for years to come (I understand the economy and illegal immigration have become the overriding issues for many voters, but this changes). His position doesn't stray much from the neo-conservative position, in which foreign policy rules supreme, and limited government is of little concern.

The most succinct definition of "Neo-Con" I've seen in a long time--and accurate.
