As a serious answer to a serious question one thing I've noticed is that because Americans can live without ever having to interact with non-Americans a lot of them don't have the breadth of outlook you would get among other peoples. Take yourself as an example, how many different nationalities do you deal with in the course of a week?
So while there is no shortage of witty, worldly wise Americans, they do seem to have a few who haven't grasped that not everyone thinks like they do, and they certainly haven't grasped that 'not thinking like they do' doesn't make you some sort of deviant.
You get this in all societies but American is physically big enough and advanced enough to ensure that it is an easier trap for people to fall into.
This isn't meant to be an insult or slagging people off, but you do see it on some forums
