In the history of the world, has an actual person of substance ever had to say they are a person of substance?

It's kind of like saying, "I'm proud of how humble I am", or "I've taken a lifelong vow of silence" (throws hand over mouth) "...oops!"

She was created by her husband and the MN Chamber of Commerce. A total creation. She is given her positions by those who created her. Complete pygmalion scenario.

See also, Milli Vanilli, Fiona Apple, Scott Walker.

Aw, the Fiona thing's not fair. Sure she ill-advisedly turned her life over to that hack Jon Brion, but that was well after Tidal, which was just gorgeous.

I was consulting in southwest Texas a few years back with a couple rich white racists from Arizona. They went on and on about how wonderful Bachmann is, how she is the only member of congress with an economics degree, and so on. I tried to rope a dope it for a couple hours, then I lost it. And my companies contract. It was worth it for the look on their faces when one of their assumed tribe members turned on them.

She just didn't specify which substance.
