The author is pointing out what Elizabeth Drew was essentially doing.

I know that. In doing so he provides a small window into his own view - which is likewise obscure. Going on at length about neo-conservatism, he tells us nothing about what neo-conservatism is.

I disagree with you wholeheartedly. He is responding to a label which has been foistered on people. It's like labelling a group of people something and then complaining when that group refuses to define the label.

One of his major points is one which I have made repeatedly-- the term neoconservative as it is used by the left and by the paleoconservatives has no meaning. You say he can't tell you what it is-- and that is because no one can. Any attempt to define neoconservatives omits the majority of the people who supposedly are neoconservatives.
