2. "West has sacrificed friendships and cut ties with former comrades because he insists that only

outright denunciation of Obama will do."

With him or against him.. where have I heard words to that effect before?

"Westís narcissism in this matter is not exemplified by his sense of being jilted but in the way he has personalized his grief. And the longer West has nursed his resentment, the more he has revealed parts of himself that even he may not understand or be able to explain, since political disappointment in a politicianís behavior rarely provokes such torrents of passion, such protracted, dastardly, and sadly, such self-destructive hate. The volatility that West said roils his personal relations may also mar his political ones. Now he lumbers into his future, punch-drunk from too many fights unwisely undertaken, facing a cruel reality: His greatest opponent isnít Obama, Sharpton, Harris-Perry, or me. It is the ghost of a self that spits at him from his own mirror.

Thank you, BBJ
