David Mamet is a Conservative - Sort of

Here's an interesting article by Terry Teachout on playwright David Mamet's conservatism (defined largely by his respect for markets and support for Israel).

I've been a fan of Mamet's for some time. He wrote Glengarry Glen Ross, Speed the Plow, and other plays, he wrote screen plays for The Untouchables, The Verdict, The Postman Always Rings Twice, and others, and wrote and directed films such as Heist and Things Change. But I only followed his professional work; I had no idea about his newly expressed "conservatism" until this article.
