This is the ultimate caricature of America that is used endlessly by the news media, the politicians, everybody with an axe to grind or a position to sell. America the angry, America the frustrated, etc. Can you do a poll of frustration, anger, resignation, and despair? Can you measure these things? I mean seriously, really, measure them directly and objectively? Of course not. Please stop telling me how angry and frustrated American’s are b/c one of the few things that is truly making American’s angry and frustrated is being told over and over again how angry and frustrated they are.
