"The elision of criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism strikes me as not only wrong but offensive."

Commenter Steve Myers:

I don't think Mamet's crazy. He's just turned into a right-wing crank in his old age. His political opinion on everything seems to be some version of "Back off, hippie. I got mine." Happens to a lot of guys.

He's also a conservative variant of the celebrity who's received so much praise for his brilliance that he freely tosses off opinions of stuff he's completely out of depth on.
