At the non-spoofy end you'd have Sunil Khilnani, who, even when he's just writing a book review, seems as a writer in nearly a class by himself ('nearly' only because he'd have one companion in that class: Mukul Kesavan):

Neither entirely spoofy nor entirely serious is the style long adopted by TCA Srinivasa-Raghavan:
