Pharisees and the left

It has occurred to me that today's left is much like the Pharisees.
This was brought home by the images of the alleged actor Sean Penn in his malfunctioning boat and toting a shotgun through the streets of New Orleans in the wake of Katrina.
Show up, show off (and don't forget your publicity photographer). Brag on what you do -- "Look at me, I'm wonderful" -- and forget about humility.
Say no more.
