Stalin Invented ‘American Exceptionalism’

Stalin Invented ‘American Exceptionalism’

  How Joseph Stalin Invented 'American Exceptionalism' Rick Santorum and the rest of GOP presidential gang all have a man-crush. Considering he was an outright intellectual elitist, a shaggy-haired liberal, and -- horror of horrors -- French, the object of their adoration seems a bit surprising, but the French aristocrat Alexis de Tocqueville and his 1835 United States travelogue, Democracy in America, have surged into national politics this campaign cycle -- often linked to the nascent ...
