That didn't take long

As predicted, McCain's other staffer with a history of lobbying for the Burmese junta resigned yesterday. I called that one, though it was pretty obvious it was going to happen. I'm wondering if this will spread. Who else out there did PR for the current rulers of Burma?

(I'm calling it Burma rather than Myanmar. Myanmar is the official name. But it was the current junta that changed the name to Myanmar. So calling the nation "Burma" is a sort of a political poke in the eye to them.)

Agreed. Furthermore if you pronounce Myanmar properly, it should sound almost identical to "Burma" anyway. But in deference to the Junta everyone says "ME and marrrr" instead of "myĆ£maa"... which is bothe politically and linguistically absurd.
