23. The Prince of Darkness is not unique in that.
Most neoconservatives of the 1970s were liberals who became disenchanted with the post-Vietnam leftward drift of the Democratic party. Most gravitated toward the hawkish Reagan GOP and transformed the Republican party over time into what we have known it to be during the past 8 years. Joe Lieberman is one neocon who has not so far followed this stereotype of party affiliation.

The neocons are the Republican party of today, at least insofar as foreign policy is concerned. And in that respect it is not accurate to say Pearle is worse than a Republican. But your point is well taken, since he and every one of the neocons of today are much worse than any Republican would have been 40 years ago, or one who still holds dear the GOP values of that period.

To me there is no ideological group that is more sinister than the neocons. It is very important that every single one is purged from any and all involvement in the new administration.
