Beware of Oxymorons

The wingers get hung up on talking points that are mainly oxymorons. One of the points of conservatism's failure is the destruction of reason, in other words, the rationalization of irrationality.

Some of my favorite oxymorons are:
1) intellectual conservative
2) progressive conservative
3) conservative truth
4) conservative future
5) liberal conservative
6) conservative philosopher
7) conservative order
8) compassionate conservative
9) conservative union
10)conservative democracy.

Post yours if you like. These are my top 10 and with a knowledge of the history of conservatism I am sure there are thousands more.
