About that “Hand over Heart” Claim…
Last week, Doug Mataconis noted the claim by Mitt Romney that Americans “are the only people on the earth that put our hand over our heart during the playing of the national anthem.”
Doug linked to some photographic evidence that contradicted that claim. For those who prefer moving pictures, I give you Glenn Kessler.
Why are so many American so insecure that they have to create a world in their own minds wherein America is exceptional in every way? And that’s not snark: I find it to be an exceptionally (pardon the word) interesting question both sociologically and politically.
