I think the trouble with getting hooked on american politics (I am) is exactly as you say- it makes british politics seem thoroughly uninteresting by comparison. In fact I can barely summon interest in UK politics any more.
And true what you say about coverage- I try and get my US coverage from US papers, and then when you read the british version of the same story it is frequently ill-informed or misleading. Or ramps up the 'crazy'.


I suppose I'm just ill-informed -- I just didn't realize that America, and especially the American political system, was admired much in Great Britain. I'm more often than not embarrassed when I think of how we in America must seem to the rest of the world. It's heartening to hear this perspective, quite new to me. This was an extremely enlightening essay, thank you!
