Made In China
There was an outcry of sorts when the news came out that this year’s American Olympic team is clothed in duds made in China. John Boehner and Harry Reid, in one act of bipartisanship, expressed dismay at this.
When you think about it, that might be the best representation of the United States, “made in China.” Maybe we can use all the gold medals we win as a down payment on all that debt we owe China.
There’s a bunch of partisan conservative hacks attacking Democrats for expressing displeasure with this. Wow. Attack Democrats for wanting American pride. They totally ignore that Republicans in Washington aren’t pleased either.
It should also be noted, that while Mitt Romney was running the Salt Lake Olympics (while he may or may not have still been working at Bain outsourcing jobs), the U.S. Olympic team’s uniforms were made in Burma.
