RUSH: Have you heard about this Olympic uniform controversy? I saw a picture of ’em. You mean the ones with the berets and stuff? Apparently Ralph Lauren, Polo, so forth, has the contract every four years do the Olympic uniforms. These are the dress uniforms that are used for the opening and closing ceremonies. (interruption) You don’t like them? You hate them. You hate the beret. You hate the jacket, the slacks? Okay. Snerdley says it looks to him like a euro-weenie outfit. What, is it the beret that does that to you? They’re blue blazers, white slacks, and the beanie. Well, they got a large Polo logo, but what would you expect? Polo makes the damn things.
Anyway, the real rub is it turns out that they’re actually made by the ChiComs. And of all the things to be angry about, why would anybody… this administration loves the ChiComs. The ChiComs can show us the way. I mean our leaders salivate for the kind of power the ChiCom leaders have. But apparently Ralph Lauren having the ChiComs manufacture the stuff doesn’t sit well. Grab audio sound bite number 18. This is Dingy Harry yesterday on Capitol Hill talking about the US Olympic team uniforms being made by the ChiComs.
REID: I am so upset, that I think the Olympic committee should be ashamed of themselves. I think they should be embarrassed. I think they should take all the uniforms, put ’em in a big pile and burn them and start all over again.
RUSH: Just ’cause they’re made in China. Just because they’re made in China. And Pelosi, by the way, she’s also blasted the Olympic uniforms being made in China. The strangest things make these people mad. You know, if they’d just get half as mad at what their policies are causing to happen to people. They get all excited here about where clothes are made.
