''Americans are outraged by the situation in Burma,'' President Bush said in an address to the U.N. General Assembly. Now called Myanmar, the Asian country also is known as Burma.
I'm sure there are probably terrible things happening in Burma, now known as Myanmar. But have you been outraged by it? Are any of your friends or co-workers or family members outraged by it?
Why does he have to lie about everything?
Americans care so little about what's happening in Burma, now called Myanmar, that whenever a newspaper ever writes about the country, the paper feels obligated to explain in every single article that the country now called Myanmar was formerly called Burma.
And if you really wanted to see a demonstration of "Americans are so dumb, they can't find country x on a map," ask them to locate Myanmar formerly known as Burma. Hell, it would take me a minute and I'm a friggin' genius.
