Is the Neoconservative Moment Over?

Pat Buchanan makes a compelling case for the possibility that the neoconservative movement may have achieved too much public recognition for its own good.

"Moreover, for a movement that is small in number and utterly dependent on its proximity to power, the neocons have made major mistakes. They have insulted too many U.S. allies, boasted too much of their connections and influence, attracted too much attention to themselves, and antagonized too many adversaries. In this snake pit of a city, their over-developed penchant for self-promotion is not necessarily an asset."
