Something rare here. A playwrite wakes up to reality. Long overdue.
Hate America rhetoric worked well in 2006. I hope that the hate exposed in the last few days will enlighten voters to the degree that it’s attraction will wane.

The journey 60-year-old Mamet has made from being what he calls a "brain-dead liberal" to acknowledging the genius of philosophers such as Thomas Sowell and Milton Friedman is a difficult one for an artist. We in the creative world swim in liberalism like fish in water. It's hard for us even to imagine that one might evolve and walk on dry land.
Mamet's "The Edge" was decidedly pro conservative,
I was surprised to hear Mamet described as a liberal after having viewing the 1997 movie.
He must have stayed in the closet for at least a decade.

“The Winslow Boy” is one of my all-time favorites. Great movie.
