From Ace of Spades:
"Maybe this is why Palin has suddenly resonated with the American people. She exudes a sense of what America used to be and what it can return to: confident, proud, able, and firmly unapologetic. Yes compared to perfection, America may be lacking but compared to every other country on Earth, America’s benevolence has no equal. Our bad acts have been no worse than those of every other country but our positive acts have saved the lives of 100’s of millions of people through out the world.
Palin seems to stir this sense of American exceptionalism that for too long has been squelched by the radical Liberal agenda. We have been constantly told by educators, by the media, by politicians that we are a bad country in need of much deserved rebuke. Palin on the other hand casts such dispersions aside and stirs feelings deep inside all of us that we Americans should be proud and confident. We have the unparalleled ability to solve any challenge placed before us. Palin has awaked this long slumbering American spirit."
