Not something for America to be proud of
Tangled Up In Blue Guy asks; Is my country disintegrating?
The only reason that I have a question mark at the end of the title is that I wonder if it was any better at any other time. I certainly don’t remember an election in which people decided on the issues. Maybe America never has been as great as advertised, and I will accept that right now my cynicism is based on the debasing attacks that I see hurled by people like those in the video.
The video in question, of McCain supporters in Johnstown, PA, is difficult to watch. I shudder to think of people in other countries seeing it, and thinking it might represent the United States of America. Because if that’s what we’re united around, it’s frightening.
