Ah, This Is Very Interesting

      Via Instapundit, (who moments later came down with a case of humor impairment), we get this insight by Matthew Iglesias:
      At today's Take Back America conference I saw some interesting polling data from Diane Feldman on a subject I'd pondered now and again. Unfortunately, the written summary of the presentation doesn't contain the exact numbers and I didn't write them down because I assumed this question would be included in the summary.  The point, however, was that when you ask if America is "the greatest country in the world" most voters say that it is.  When you ask if Democrats believe that America is the greatest country, most voters say that they do not.

      I think it's clear that this perception creates some electoral problems.  Indeed, it's a particularly serious kind of electoral problem because my guess is that the perception is probably correct.

      Just one correction, Matthew.  The "perception" that other countries are better than the U.S. creates problems for Democrats, but the reality that they regard are countries as superior probably creates even more problems.

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
