I conclude from Max Boot's touching letter to George Clooney ("Best supporting neocon") that it takes one to know one--a neocon that is. Right-winger Boot, formerly of the Wall Street Journal and now spending time at the Council of Foreign Ratlines, demonstrates an amazing capacity to spot a fellow neocon in a little suspected place, a silver-screen image projected out of liberal Hollywood.
Boot's own "neocondom" outing into the safe politics of the rich and powerful came in a column he wrote for the December 30, 2002 Wall Street Journal. He starts his confession by asking, "What the Heck Is a Neocon?" and then admits, "I suppose that makes George W. Bush a neocon. If it's good enough for the president, it's good enough for me."
I think that Boot's fellow neocons of Hollywood let him down this year in their award of the Oscar for best supporting actor. It would have better gone to George W. Bush. And for his leading role, Dick Cheney should have been recognized as best actor. His shoot-my-buddy improvisation--foreshadowed by a beer for lunch and trailered with a twenty-four-hour delay in reporting--added a Texas-two-step dimension to In Cold Blood. And even without makeup, Cheney looks more like Truman Capote.

I think the Neocons wish that they had George Clooney on their side. He is an intelligent and informed man, it's a shame that the same can't be said for the American administration.
My favourite Bush-ism is " I believe that man and the fish can co-exist." Idiot.
Maybe George Clooney should also look at the vaguely intelligent people who backed George Bush, aren't they even more frightening?(Tony Blair)
But that is just my humble opinion.
