American Exceptionalism Defined

I've mentioned this before, but among the many things that drive me nuts about liberals is their fetish about self-esteem, that is, self-esteem over achievement, or better, self-esteem despite the lack of achievement.  However, they abandon this concern when it comes to their country.  Here, anything that even smacks of self-esteem, you know, like American exceptionalism, is positively dangerous.

Anyway, Clifford May over at NRO does a solid job of defining American exceptionalism by contrasting his understanding with that recently proffered by the very liberal Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen.

Check it out.
