Francis Fukuyama's conversion

I got a good chuckle from BotW today. Frank Fukuyama has converted from Neo-Conism and used as a Charles Krauthammer speech as his a-ha moment. You can read Taranto's take on this but what I really enjoyed was this description of Fukuyama.

And of course garnered great media attention and praise for doing so, which seems undeserved even if he turns out to be right. The good news, though, is that he has a history of being so spectacularly wrong--"the Paul Ehrlich of geopolitics," as an InstaPundit reader calls him--that his turn against Iraq strikes may itself be reason for optimism about the outcome there.

Ouch. Here's to hoping that Fukuyama has Al Gore's timing.

From Instapundit:

Byron Matthews emails: "His peculiar talent is to sense the intellectual tide and quickly ride it, which makes him the David Gergen of geopolitics."

Double Ouch.
