Exceptionalism

From NYT, comment to Fishs’ review of Palins’ book:

“I am a retired Air Force colonel and the I think the US is exceptional. We have an exceptional record of backing or installing right wing police state dictators to the detriment of their populations as in Iran 1953 and Chile 1973. Based on her two oldest children, Palin is a long cry from being an exceptionally good mother. Strange she should dwell on the name Jefferson, since Thomas Jefferson would have considered Sarah Palin to be an uneducated religious nut.

We have real problems in the US, and it will take critical intelligence to identify the root causes and to come up with good solutions to save our middle class, and I don’t think simple minded jingoism will be helpful.”

Exceptional.!
