It's odd enough that some have taken to using the word "neoconservative" to describe Justices Scalia and Thomas. Now "neoconservative" is being used to describe Joseph Ratzinger, the newly-elected Pope Benedict XVI. (See here and here; E.J. Dionne flirts with the term here.) How utterly bizarre. It would be as if newspapers, for no apparent reason, started referring to James Dobson as a member of the Christian Social Union of Bavaria.
