"I'm the center of the universe, and thusly a centrist."

"Althouse misses the point entirely...."

Fake but accurate. CBS

It is very comforting to know that Obama has solved all of the hard questions with his total goodness radiating out to end every disagreement. Why do we need a Congress for anything now that Obama has agreed to govern us?

On Twitter, Althouse mentioned the insight that she often perceives things as smaller than they actually are.

I said I tend to view the world as much vaster than my puny self.

Now with Obama as the Center of the Universe, I suddenly find I'm coming around to Althouse's way of thinking.

Fake Barack Obama really isn't very funny. It mostly reads like run-of-the-mill center-left blog. Even the solipsism is typical.

The only good original line in there is in the Althouse post. If Althouse is going to provide material, Althouse needs a cut.

Commenting on other's comments about another's comments...[is] entirely too meta.

Okay, I looked up meta, and as I understand it meta refers to the concept of - for example - the memory of memory: metamemory. But metamemory is the memory of memory in the abstract.

By that definition the above statement is not correct, right? Commenting on specific comments is not metacommenting. It's only when one comments on the concept of commenting that one is making a metacomment. I think.

Help!

I think that commenting on a comment wondering if another comment on a comment is meta or not is too meta.

Touche, MM.

Meta would be commenting on the world of comments above and apart from comments while paradoxically being a comment. Meta on comments is not merely furthering the discussion.

Meta comment must mind the Ts.

... thought my Wikipedia vandalism of Roberts may give some that impression.

s/b though

I am fascinated by people who impersonate (without intending to deceive) celebrities online. I tweeted about watching 24 one night and suddenly "Tony Almeida" was following me. Seriously?

Beyond the who has time and blah blah blah, I can't even think of anyone I'd want to impersonate. I feel jaded. Surely there's someone I want to be besides me.
