An apt description of the Left


Apparently there is a play based on the life and musings of patriotic, peace-loving activist Rachel Corrie, pictured here.

In discussing the "play" Terry Teachout had the following to say about the Left:

It's an ill-crafted piece of goopy give-peace-a-chance agitprop--yet it's being performed to cheers and tears before admiring crowds of theater-savvy New Yorkers who, like Mr. Rickman himself, ought to know better.

So why don't they? Because Palestine is the new Cuba, a political cause whose invocation has the effect of instantaneously anesthetizing the upper brain functions of those who believe in it.

'Nuff said.
