Ready To Leave The Left

I've seen several bloggers refer to David Mamet's essay in The Village Voice explaining how he, a lifelong liberal -- as shown through has pen, has had a change of heart. It reminds me of the quote oft attributed to Winston Churchill "Any 20-year old who is not a liberal doesn't have a heart and any 40-year old who is not a conservative doesn't have a brain."

With age comes the wisdom of reality. Click below to read Mamet's essay
