    Palin Got Neoconned in Record Time

    It's a good thing Pat Buchanan's not dead. He'd be rolling over in his grave.

    At the Republican convention, Buchanan was taken in by the mass hysteria surrounding Sarah Palin. But even as he cheered, Pat inserted a caveat. He feared that Palin would be brainwashed by the nutty neoconservatives whom Buchanan has dedicated his recent life to debunking.

    Sure enough. On Thursday we heard Palin telling Charlie Gibson that "perhaps" it might be a good idea to go to war with Russia over Georgia and the Ukraine.

    Going to war with Russia over some border dispute is not conservative. It's insane, and no one has stated this more clearly than Buchanan.

    "John McCain may declare, 'We are all Georgians now!' -- but, are Americans, or Europeans, truly willing to go to war with a nuclear-armed Russia to keep Joseph Stalin's birthplace under a regime led by an erratic hothead who launched what may be the dumbest war in history, which he lost within 24 hours?" he wrote in a column from the convention.

    Buchanan had spent the first half of that column praising Palin. But he spent the second half warning that she would do exactly what she did on Thursday, endorse the loony left-wing Wilsonianism that has come to be known as "neo" conservatism.

    I on the other hand had Palin pegged from the start. Maybe it's because I wasn't in St. Paul getting caught up by the crowd fervor. But my initial assessment was that Palin is too naïve and unsophisticated to see through the so-called "neo" conservative philosophy, the idea that it is the duty of the U.S. federal government to assure democratic government everywhere on the planet.
