“And I realized that the time had come for me to avow my participation in that America in which I chose to live, and that that country was not a schoolroom teaching values, but a marketplace.” — David Mamet in his 3.11 Village Voice essay, “Why I Am No Longer a Brain-Dead Liberal.” Which means he’s evolved into what?

Sooner or later the Mamet machismo element had to manifest in some kind of stated political posture.
