An american who is ignorant of things outside their country, and quite often ignorant of what goes on inside it too. Media manipulation?, ignorance is bliss!!
NOTE: not all americans are ignorant, every country suffers from the problem, the main problem is when the ignorant american also happens to be a loud american, which compounds the problem and lets others (usually a lot) know of their affliction. Often will carry on about how america saved the world in wwII, but forgets to mention the reason why the majority of troops involved in the d-day landings were american- the allies had been fighting the war for more than a few years and had run out of men!
I heard an ignorant american once ask "what country is europe in?"
