Here's my understanding of this comment, to clear things up: the story
is that he was in front of a really enthusiastic crowd, and the
comment was a joke about the way the crowd was looking up to him.
Totally not an arrogant statement.  Even if I don't agree with every
one of his other opinions, I still think it was
a pretty funny comment, and not inappropriate at all in the context.
