I'm going to be a real asshole about this -either that or just another run of the mill internationalist- but I'm sick of pundits, liberal pundits obviously, saying 'we' in reference to the US. I don't have much to say about the Pew poll, for example, except as a matter of politics. The Constitution is a brilliant piece of work, but still, I just live here. To think otherwise becomes a form of moral relativism I can't refer to without either irony or anger. I'm not merely being catty. This isn't a football game.
4pm: I said I wasn't much interested in the Pew study but I should be paying more attention, nonetheless. I just picked this up from Eric Alterman: 47% of Israelis think we favor Israel too much. That's useful.
