More Later, But For Now...

The argument made by Gideon Rose about how neocons and netroots are similar is pretty odd. I'll have more later, but for now, an allegory.

Socrates is a man.
Plato is a man.
Is Socrates then Plato?

Now, Gideon.

"Neocons" attack foreign policy professionals.
"Netroots" attack foreign policy professionals.
...(Fill the blank in yourself.)

If "foreign policy professionals" are making arguments this weak, then why on earth should they be receiving deference?
