As most left-leaning, liberal, European types do, I find myself in considerable danger of becoming rabidly anti-American most days. My solution is to pick two Americans you like and follow them now and again, to act as a reminder that they're not all Mitch Romford or George Bush. Avoid politicians if you can, because politics in America is far more right-wing than in any sane country. I chose PZ Myers and Carl Sagan myself, but there are others that work just as well. When you hear of an American doing something stupid, just go to your sponsored yank correspondent and see the other side of things. If you've picked a good one then they'll probably be frothing about it too.
