He might not be spot on about healthcare, but he is about major league douchebag Kanye West:
It would be one thing if we simply said that Kanye made some decent music. That kind of cultural designation would make it easy to admonish him when he goes off on one of his humorless, self-pitying rants or shows almost no respect for the music others have made. Instead, though, we've elevated Kanye to a place within our culture he really doesn't deserve to be.

You’re wondering why Kanye West is interesting. We get that. But the following is a frightening account of what happens when someone who has had success forgets where he is and what he is doing. A bit like Tony Blair after he stepped down as British Prime Minister and tried to fix the Middle East. Or Arnold Schwarznegger when he decided it was a good idea to do Expendables 2.
