    Haters, Heal Thyselves
    By Suzanne Fields, The Washington Times

    Anti-Americanism is the disease du jour for a lot of the world's envious, beginning with the intellectuals, who are carriers of the virus, and including bloggers, washed-up politicians and whatever man (or woman) in the street who wants to put in his nickel's worth a lazy reporter with a microphone, camera, pad or pencil can find.

    It's more consensus than conspiracy -- the ganging up on the most powerful nation in the world. Uncle Sam, meet Gulliver. Much of the envy, of course, is because America is the most powerful nation in the world. Envy easily becomes animosity, and, as Freud would say, a negative "projection" pushes the argument: There but for the grace of God go I. Not.

    No cure for this malady is in sight, but certain palliatives prescribed in unscientific trials are working their way through the bodies politic, easing the pain if not curing the disease.
