Mike Malloy's term for politicians (and their civilian marks) at the extreme, scary end of US conservatism - it comes from his having been frightened by the flying monkeys in The Wizard of Oz as a child.

In comparison, people like John McCain or John Chafee or the late Barry Goldwater are just plain old non-scary, somewhat honorable, conservatives.
