#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?

#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.

#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.
