"Only in America would grand constitutional dramas get less media coverage than the trial of a fading pop star. Only in America would senators lecture judges on the law while the cameras are rolling and then leave the room mid-hearing (practically mid-sentence) when the lights go down. Only in America would people care about Scott Peterson. Only in America would the tragedy of two families — the Schiavos and the Schindlers — create national chaos in the law. Only in America. "
-Andrew Cohen on 2005.
