You could always just join your peers in being incompetant - maybe the work would get spread more evenly if you all appeared to have equal ability ;)

BTW - I love this "meetings all day" example. One of the things I bitched about on my way out was the company's seemingly ingrained requirement to have meetings, not to actually achieve something productive, but just to say they had a meeting. Forcing people to come in on their off hours to listen to somebody talk to them for 1.5 hours about something that could be expressed in 3 minutes through an email does not make a happy employee :P

Heh - that sensitivity training is really paying off!

Two words: Document everything!

I'm in a similar situation & considered a star where I work because I make sure my work is reasonably documented. I let people swing or hang on their own merits & I'm as well respected (not very much) as possible in the business world.

Like Hapkido says - document.

Then mention the extensive documentation to your bosses on occasion and suggest that you're due for a raise.

Nothing to lose.
