No, I missed it because I understand that paleoconservatism is not traditional conservatism. Paleoconservatism is younger and newer even than neoconservatism.

Hence your confusion.

Paleocon refers to a branch of conservatism that has been around for a long time, regardless of how hold the term has been used. It is largely used by paleocons themselves to distinguish themselves from their neocon usurpers. This is silly, since neither they nor I can tell what neocons stand for other than some things Pat Buchanan disagrees with.
