The official merchandise Web site for President George W. Bush's re-election campaign has sold clothing made in Burma, whose goods were banned by Bush from the U.S. last year to punish its military dictatorship. The merchandise sold on www.georgewbushstore.com includes a $49.95 fleece pullover, embroidered with the Bush-Cheney '04 logo and bearing a label stating it was made in Burma, now Myanmar. The jacket was sent to Newsday as part of an order that included a shirt made in Mexico and a hat not bearing a country-of-origin label.49.95 USD is 332.667 Maloti or 27.3398 British Pounds. I wonder what kind of factories they run down in Burma. I wonder if they (still) have sweatshops, too, just like we do in Lesotho. I wonder what that lady, what was her name -- Aung San Suu Kyi -- I wonder what she thinks about this. I wonder where she is now.
