The American mindset is a dynamic, idiosyncratic reality largely detached from history--world history in particular. Because of this, boneheads like Sean Hannity are able to get away with repackaging traditional liberal ideals as "conservatism," while proclaiming that liberalism is evil. The neocons learned recently that the word "liberal" is useful as an excuse for their barbarism abroad. Presumably, people like Hannity are in favor of liberalizing the world while stamping out liberalism!
