Ed Brayton does a solid half-job on American exceptionalism

Ed Brayton uses one of Sarah Palin's latest bits of nuttery to tackle American exceptionalism.

Unfortunately, he ONLY looks at right-wingers' attachment to this, rather than noting that many, many, many a "liberal" also believes that American is inherently special, often for religious reasons, just like many on the right, but sometimes for other reasons.

(And, the religious reasons don't always include orthodox Christianity, either.)
