Who do our readers think is the most obnoxious neocon? Kristol the Elder? Kristol the Younger? Pod the Elder? Pod the Lesser? Krauthammer? Someone in the National Review axis? Kagan? Levin? Another? (Suggest me some other names, and I’ll actually make a poll to post.)
And by obnoxious I don’t necessarily mean personally. I mean which one is the most absurdly out there and over the top with their neoconservatism. My vote goes to Robert Kagan, with Levin as a close second.
Kagan is a proud and open advocate of American Imperialism. He reminds me of an Englishman defending the British Empire talking about the white man’s burden. We simply must rule the world for the good of all. Kagan is a cartoon character who lives in a cartoon world. How does this clown have a post in a “mainstream” think thank? He shouldn’t be at the Brookings Institution. He should be at the Marvel Institution. See what I mean:
Here is a post about Mr. Kagan at AmConMag.
It makes reference to this recent paean to American Imperialism.
And to his recent book obnoxiously titled, appropriately, The World America Made. (I’m not making that up.)
You have to hand it to Kagan for his honesty though. Most neocons try to pretty up their naked imperialism, but not Kagan. He flaunts it out there for the world to see.
