Maybe nothing, but one thing is remarkably close: seeing Republican stalwart blogger Ace Of Spades HQ admit that the neocon experiment is dead.
If it's not evident already, the Neocon Project is dead. It's actually been dead since around 2006-2007 (and was very unwell before that), but there has been a cowardly reluctance in the Republican establishment and among Republican pundits to admit this.
A lot of us (and I include myself here) have just hoped that no one would notice this fact, so we wouldn't have to admit it, and we could stick to our guns and keep sort of claiming we've always been right.
Well, we weren't. We certainly misjudged how quickly we could transform backwards, alien countries during an occupation, and also misjudged the public's patience for such a project.

Enough with the "we" stuff. I've been banned from commenting there, apparently only because my timing was off.
Or perhaps this means that he doesn't approve of Obama's foreign policy, now that he's stuck with it for 4 more years. Neoconservatism needs to be shot in the head to make sure it stays down, though. Bush told us he was going to kill it, and instead he fed it steroids.
And the transformation isn't complete over there: He's still moaning about the fact that Obama probably won't bomb Iran.
But it's always nice to see someone admit they were wrong. Especially when they were horribly, murderously wrong.
