Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It wasn't just one ass. It was simply experiencing a load of people whom I genuinely believe are quite liberal, genuinely resenting some bloody foreigner saying anything remotely critical (moi ??) about the domestic and foreign policies of the USA.

Even when I was out there it was quite bizarre to discover that, even if I agreed with friends who were democrats in their criticism of Bush, I'd be told "Y'know, we're really very tired of people coming over here and whining about our country, if you don't like it you know where you can go".

I genuinely didn't enjoy the experience and have no intention of being labelled another "f*cking european weasel" on kos like one of our front pagers. So I'll leave them to it.
