    My humility is my tenth or eleventh greatest quality.

    Just like Isis the Shoe Goddess, two self-centered arrogant people whose writing reveals that you are not nearly as intelligent as you think you are. Two peas in a pod.

    anonymous, just a little tip: read the comments. When everyone else gets the irony of saying, “See? It says so on the internet,” you look a little silly for taking it seriously.

    “I love how he NEVER even considers that maybe there were thousands of people calling in to support Katherine Sebelius. Nope, they were just flat out ignored by the eeeeefil libruls.”

    Never considered those calling and supporting Sebelius? They haven’t yet considered that their fellow citizens voted Obama into office by 10 million more votes, including states McCain was supposed to walk away with. They still think THAT’s an international – or at least highly subversive home-grown – “socialist” baby-eating satanic plot to destroy the USA. It’s no surprise at all they didn’t consider that people actually think differently and that Sebelius is qualified.

    They aren’t in the business of considering positions they don’t have on their official talking points card. It’s just easier to log everything in the Satanic cosmological cataclysmic armageddon recipe column. In which case one has to wonder why they even care, if their afterlife is supposedly so great and salvational.

    On the one hand, you do have some pretty damned good company on that list, on the other, there are some very smart people missing – and dammit, you aren’t really, really awesomest and truly smartest until you’ve been quoted in the NYT five times and interviewed on NPR at least ten times…

    And honestly folks, my own humble demeanor far outshines Greg’s. I’m really the most magnificently humble person I know – possibly the most stunningly (fantabulously even) humble person alive today. Like, the people around me totally bow to my awesome meekness…

    Isn’t there a lyric in a Weird Al song about this? “And I know I’m a million times more humble than thou art”, if memory serves.

    the NYT five times and interviewed on NPR at least ten times…

    I’ve probably only been in the NYT two or three times (maybe three or four), and NPR probably only a couple of times. But I’ve been on The World (Canadian broadcast) in The Globe (a couple of time) front page science section in the Star Tribune (when they had a science section) and a few other times in the Strib and the Pioneer Press (St. Paul).

    But I don’t want to brag or anything.

    I don’t know – I’m not sure that the Star Tribune, the CBC or PP count. But I guess I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt – you did go to, err, what was that school again??? Oh yeah, Yale wasn’t it?:)
