Young Damon Weaver scored tickets to the Inauguration by interviewing Joe Biden and hurtling his 10-year-old self into YouTube celebritydom. Now Politico reports that he's continuing to ask for an Obama exclusive.

I will probably have a YouTube channel devoted to my toddler's witticisms one day, but this strikes me as odd. It's one thing to capture chilren's unconscious cuteness (take Capucine, the cutest girl on the Internet) but it's stranger to see 10-year-olds who are consummate, suave self-promoters — and whose self-promotion is rewarded with national press. 

It's cute. Of course it's cute. But I'm trying to imagine living with a 10-year-old who thinks he's entitled to interview the President of the United States. He would have to be insufferable.
