We're #5! We're #5!

Here's something you Tea Party lunatics can cheer about:
The United States, according to Amnesty International, placed fifth in 2010’s global executions race, with 46 state-sanctioned killings of human beings. China came in first, with a death tally of 1,000-plus. Second-place Iran killed at least 252, North Korea in third with 60, give or take a few, and Yemen pulled up fourth, killing 53, with maybe a few extra tossed in.
Aren't you proud? We're in the same category as brutal dictatorships, Arab states, and our two chief enemies. And you thought gay marriage was proof of our country's moral decline.
