OUGHTN'T WE EMBRACE HIS HONESTY?:

Revisionists on American Revolution Brooding on Left and Right (IRA STOLL, June 28, 2011, NY Sun)

More puzzling, to me, is the Brooklyn rabbi — described by the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg as “an important figure in liberal Jewry,” and someone I know to be intelligent and dynamic — who recently posted, “That stupid introduction to the Declaration of Independence, that pretentious, idiotic, self-absorbed nonsense about ‘certain unalienable rights?’ It’s precisely where we went wrong!”

After all, at least he's conceding that everything he dislikes about America is a function of its very Foundation.
