It is a LOT better than we were expecting coming into it. For some reason, the addition of a baby into everything makes the whole thing much more terrifying.
Only to find a naked, skinny guy holding an american flag and a rifle.
So… that happened.
Let me make it clear at the outset. I too believe in American exceptionalism, although I don’t think God has anything to do with it. But I suspect my perspective will find little favor among Republicans in general and Tea Party members in particular. For I believe that America is exceptional in the advantages we’ve had over other nations, not what we’ve done with those advantages.
Indeed, to me there are two American exceptionalisms. One is the exceptionally favorable circumstances the United States found itself in at its founding and over its first 200 years. The second is the exceptional way in which we have squandered those advantages, in the process creating a value system singularly antagonistic to the changes needed when those advantages disappeared.
This makes me cry. What’s wrong with this country?
