only in America

only in America
An expression that invokes particular qualities of the United States of America and suggests (sometimes in jest) that those qualities are responsible for an observed phenomenon. Can be used positively or negatively for instance, for a verdict perceived as outrageous because of the stress placed on the rights of the accused, or for an individual rising from poverty to a position of extreme wealth and power (compare American Dream).
