Maybe That's Kinda What America Thinks

I'm certainly not going to defend Glenn Beck, but I think this does kind of reflect a lot of the thinking out there. When there's a Problem somewhere out in the world, we kinda sorta hope that America is like Superman and can go take care of it, but we also suspect that we aren't actually an all-powerful force capable of handling just about any problem. So quickly we go from "do something" to "oh shit we're doing something."
