Is “a boot in your ass” the American Way?

Rhetorical question, of course. I just happened to hear for the mmmmmmth time the opening to Sean Hannity’s radio program, which contains “‘we’ll put a boot in your ass / it’s the American way” from Toby Keith‘s “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)” — something that gripes me every time I hear it.

And every time I hear it I can’t help but think of how Ron Paul pointed out so consistently during the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns that such an attitude underlying American foreign policy is largely responsible for our woes around the world.

Why can’t we just lead by example rather than by throwing our weight around?
