As of March 2008, David Mamet is no longer a "brain-dead liberal!" Now he's evidently a heartless, souless, religious conservative. Sad!

Why in hell doesn't he convert to CLASSICAL LIBERALISM? Right-wing conservatives are every bit as stupid and depraved as left-wing progressives!

Mamet is quite good at theater -- but very poor at politics. :-(

I was just wondering if David Mamet changed his views on television and it doing no good. I've been researching his life for my lit class, and I just found out he was producing The Unit, a television show. I guess my comment is more of a question. Otherwise I enjoyed listening to this interview.
