The national character, unpacked

We love reading the comments section here at the Wire. It's the surest way to tell if we've screwed up, touched a nerve, or added too much snark to our favorite iced beverages. To show our appreciation, the Wire staff will be spotlighting one of your comments each day that we feel deserves special recognition. There are no criteria for this distinction, although humor and insight will usually win over online poker spam.

Our winner today is PERFECTCIRCLES, who, in discussing Alex Eichler's post on the looming government shutdown, described our national character concisely and accurately.

The American People can always find the strength and determination to be wrong about something.

Thanks for reading, everyone.
