Bigger and Uglier

Thanks to Michael McCarthy for sending the link to this article. “What caught my eye about this story,” Michael says, “is that this new research contradicts the excuses many people have been making for the past few years – at least, since the Bush administration got into power – that people around the world don’t dislike us, it’s our foreign policy (Bush and Co) that they dislike. Not true at all, says this new report. It’s the ugly behavior they dislike. And rightly so. Americans tour the world like they are touring a zoo, talking loudly and pointing fingers and dressed like they may have to clean out the manure from the monkey cage.”
