“Has America gone Crazy?"

Ann Jones is asked “Has America gone crazy?” "Polite people, normally reluctant to risk offending a guest, complain that America’s trigger-happiness, cutthroat free-marketeering, and ‘exceptionality’ have gone on for too long to be considered just an adolescent phase. Which means that we Americans abroad are regularly asked to account for the behavior of our rebranded ‘homeland,’ now conspicuously in decline and increasingly out of step with the rest of the world."

And as I looked at the list of questions all I could think was: yup, and it's only one party that's gone crazy.
