Apparently, it's an "In Thing" term for "The Neocon Left"
The faux-left love to label the genuine left as ‘apologists for dictators’ ’Stalinists’ ‘or tyrannophiles’.
But when it comes to apologisingn (sic) for tyrants no one is more guilty than neocons and the faux-left.
I'm shaking my head.
Not because this is too Au Courant "Leftist" for me ... but because my friend actually looked it up .. and found the answer.
I had always thought better of him.
The thought which frightens me is, that the machines all-too-often ARE smarter than me!
On the other hand, the kids that were smarter than me in Junior high School usually got the crap beat out of the by the "dumb" kids who resented their "Holier Than Thou" attitudes.
(There's an aphorism there, but the best thing I could come up with is "Smarmy Smart Kids Shouldn't Try To Lord It Over Tough Dumb Kids")
Needs a little work, doesn't it?
