22. I happen to like identity politics, particularly the new awareness of the nuances in the LGBT

community, as well as out understanding of human sexuality that have came about because of queer theory.

And Foucault's theories on the ways physical spaces are used to "other" people. Just fascinating reading for anyone of a liberal/conscientious persuasion.

I think you have identity politics confused with "punditry". Its the pundits like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin and Mt. Rushbo who whip up the idiots on these bullshit issues that have no real import to the governance of our country.
