85. Hmmm?
"I don't remember anyone getting such a cheery communal roasting alive as West has gotten from the center-right defenders of Obama"

Hilarious. Obama is popular. So in order for his detractors to reject his appeal and feel self-righteous in doing so, they have to resort to claiming the President's defenders are "center-right."

"This tells me that the irony of this is lost on the gut pluckers who pretend to be modern rationalists, when in fact they're playing the same ritual of identity politics of which they accuse West. They're merely playing out the scapegoating ritual within a different community of shared superstition and victimization."

What that tells me is that you pegged West and are now projecting. Good job on nailing West. As for "victimization," that's another role mastered. Irony: claiming that other people's opinion makes you a victim.
