Quotable: Michael Zuckerman on neo-cons

“In French slang, the word con means jackass or imbecilic wuss. So when the néo-cons–the néo-cons as the French read the term–went ahead with the ill-considered invasion and imperialist occupation of Iraq, the French thought that this was just the sort of thing that néo-cons–incompetent fools, milksop morons–would do.”

–Michael Zuckerman, “American Conservatism in Historical Perspective”
