The outrage of some United States politicians, among them Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, over the temerity of the U.S. Olympic Committee's decision to outfit American athletes with uniforms made in the Peoples Republic of China, depending on one's perspective, either raises or lowers the bar on the silliness often associated with the governing class. That designer Ralph Lauren turned to the Chinese to manufacture the goods indicates the reality of living in a global economy rather than notions of patriotism and nationalism.
