Hosted by

We've noticed a trend in a number of actions taken lately by the United States government. Tiny things, things you probably haven't heard of, but with big implications. Harassing widows. Defying a century-old and utterly benign treaty—with Canada! So we've decided to spend an hour admitting and talking about the fact that everyone knows is true: America's become a jerk.

And yes the always illuminating Jack Hitt will do some of this talking.
