In other news, Cornell West is still a raging buffoon.

“He feels most comfortable with upper middle-class white and Jewish men who consider themselves very smart, very savvy and very effective in getting what they want,” he says. “He’s got two homes. He has got his family and whatever challenges go on there, and this other home. Larry Summers blows his mind because he’s so smart. He’s got Establishment connections. He’s embracing me. It is this smartness, this truncated brilliance, that titillates and stimulates brother Barack and makes him feel at home. That is very sad for me.”

The saddest part of all is that anyone takes Cornell West seriously, on any subject. He is a huckster and a caricature of a serious thinker. As for the president being comfortable with Jews, West obviously said this before Obama threw Israel under the 1967-borders bus.
