Found this today while wandering around Web

"Why I Am No Longer a 'Brain-Dead Liberal"

Nothing annoys a liberal more than when one of their celebrated intelligentsia defects toward the Right.

This week, yet another Leftist icon, David Mamet, announced he is coming to his senses.

Nice to see that some one whose work I like is coming around to the 'Light Side', even if it does mean that his colleagues are turning on him like rabid dogs.

Predictably, some of Mamet's former colleagues and devotees among the ever-tolerant and inclusive ranks of mindless tin men, were quick to condemn Mamet for his changing views: "How sad that an intelligent person like David would write such a simplistic, downright infantile article filled with stereotypes and lacking any substantive insight whatsoever." "Does this mean that you've given up on democracy and thrown in with the authoritarians?" "I had no idea Mamet could be so shallow." "Mr. Mamet is now simply brain dead." "I'm saddened to learn David is either a liar or a fool or both." "Mamet is a political ignoramus who hides his frustration by lashing out at an imagined ‘liberalism'."

Notably, many of his Lefty critics mentioned Mamet's faith: "Our old friend Mamet is perhaps too rich and too Jewish." And more to the point: "It's been apparent for quite some time that Mamet is a Zionist. This screed is just additional evidence."

Yep, there's that oh so tolerant Left we keep hearing about.

All I have to say is, "Welcome Home, Mr. Mamet, welcome home".

Thanks for posting this!

I think one of the biggest mistakes that anyone can make in evaluating another is assuming he/she knows *why* another person made the choice he/she did. (Such as so many people who didn't pay attention to Mr. Mamet's reasons for changing political affiliations, or attributed the change to being religious.) I thought he made a good list of reasons, and I especially liked the part about not hating corporations considering all they do for us.
