Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

I am literally fascinated when I see someone make a strong ideological change. Frankly, I'm almost equally fascinated that liberals don't do more of it. I went through a similar shift when Bruce Springsteen came out of the closet as a hardcore liberal in support of John Kerry. I used to be one of his biggest fans. After 2004, I can't even stand to hear any of his songs.

The Rabbi who shot video of Helen Thomas telling Jews to "get the hell out of Palestine" appears to be going through a similar process. Watch as he tells CNN's Howard Kurtz that he basically needs to re-evaluate his entire belief system. In this video, Rabbi David Nesenoff admits to being a New York liberal who voted for Obama. He then goes on to say he's re-evaluating his positions.

It's not an easy thing to do when you've invested so much of your energy building a set of beliefs and ideological views that are all called into question at once.

Going through this process with sincere intellectual honesty is quite liberating once you come out on the other side.
