American exceptionalism


One of these days, I’d really like for some journalist to start calling politicians on their “America is the most exceptional country in the world” statement by asking, “In what way is America the most exceptional country? Certainly not in the number of gun deaths, or education, or health care, or even total GDP output now and you have voted against attempts to improve any of those things… so please quantify for us the ways in which America leads the world as the most exceptional?”
