93. Really?
as "center-right", as would I describe some of my own views the same way. I don't deny or resent Obama's personal popularity - we still have shrines and bumper stickers in our household that pay homage to him. I just haven't been able to bring myself to tear them down. Too much invested personally, I guess. But, neither can I shut up when I see a communal roast of Obama critics, no matter how parochial and sectarian their expressed views might seem - I can't project onto Cornell West or Tavis Smiley because I don't pretend to fully grasp where they're coming from.

You're defending West, but don't fully grasp where he's coming from? Really? As for your entire comment, can you reconcile it with this?

Also, it's doubtful that all Obama supporters have "shrines" paying "homage" to him. Some people aren't into that stuff.

Finally, I am far too privileged to claim victimhood of any kind. Please don't impute that to me - it doesn't show your appreciation for irony. It shows how little you know about those whom you attack, and those whom you defend. It tells me that you don't know how to have a civil discourse with those with whom you differ.

Sounds like you're playing a game, and losing.
