In this context, Juan Cole raises a rather interesting point about how US media reports American election/primary results as opposed to results in other countries (e.g. Egypt). Cole's essay, South Carolina & Gingrich, Egypt & the Muslim Brotherhood provides yet another interesting insight into how American perspectives of exceptionalism are constructed and reinforced. It's brief, and well worth a quick read.
