Speaking For Everyone

Yesterday, just before she pimped the new Cole-Haan boots, Oprah declared that “Everyone Loves Pizza!”

Everyone?  Including people with gluten or cheese allergies?  Everyone?

Now, if she said “America Loves Pizza!” that would be true, because as a population, most Americans love pizza.

But she’s the Oprah, and she thinks that she is entitled to speak for Everyone, like she did when she told Madonna that everyone in her audience was on her side in the adoption.

It’s not just a turn of phrase.  It’s a mindset of entitlement.

Isn’t entitlement something?
