#1 I hide myself inside the shadows of shame
The silent symphonies were playing their game
My body echoed to the dreams of my soul
This god is something that I could not control
Where can I run to now?

#2 The interesting thing here is not that our current POTUS is overly full of himself, but that the article is in Slate, not exactly your typical conservative news mag. Are we finally seeing the start of a preference cascade?

#3 "Senator Inouye was a hero. If he were alive today, like me, I know he would be enthralled by my speech. He was lucky to have lived long enough to see my re-election, probably the proudest moment of his life"

#4 Are we finally seeing the start of a preference cascade?

No. It's a peep of discontent; a minor quibble. No doubt the White House has taken note of Ms. Yotte's scribbling and will, at some date in the future, prepare a suitably disproportionate display of disapproval for her.

#5 Damn Frank, that's was just mean. Accurate as hell, but mean. Also stealing it with no attribution, will just change for the next Corps.

#6 The only quibble I have with Frank's paraphrase is that all Obama-related personal pronouns need to be capitalized (as in Me, My, His, Him) in order to display both Obama's stunning level of narcissism and his...sorry, His...followers' unthinking, slobbery worship.

#7 Frank went to a State College and missed the finer points of Autocracy and when to salute yur betturs.
