The BBC seems to have reduced reporting on remarks by Sarah Palin, but I found the Youtube/ AP clip so now know about the "exceptionalism" claims.

Recent discussion in the guardian as printed in the UK has covered whether people outside the USA should be commenting on the election. See Jonathan Freedland for example.

What strikes me most is that the discussion about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is still fairly limited in the UK. This is something to come back to.

But meanwhile, this "exceptionalism" is something to think about.
