>>One of the most notable differences between liberals and conservatives is that conservatives are willing to call themselves conservatives. Talk radio hosts such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity willingly, even eagerly, proclaim their conservatism. Liberals in the mainstream media, by contrast, have spent 40 years denying their obvious tilt toward the left. Even outside the media, liberals resist the label, making recognition of liberals more difficult.<<

Oh good, I have a chance to rant about one of my favorite pet peeves: Libs using "neocon" as an epithet. I don't know what a "neocon" is. I'm just a con, for God's sake - no prefixes, suffixes, or modifiers. It's the left who had to paint themselves as "New Democrats."

I don't know either. In fact, I've never read a reasonable definition of a "neocon." I'm a proud, loud, conservative, but I doubt I'm a neocon (whatever that is).

Is "neocon" like "metrosexual?"
