Aw C'mon, It's Only One Word

OK, so maybe he's not the only idiot at the White House:
The meeting between Hu and President Bush began with a gaffe when an announcer referred to China by the formal name of Taiwan, which China considers a renegade province. "Ladies and gentlemen, the national anthem of the Republic of China, followed by the national anthem of the United States of America," the announcer said as Bush and Hu stood at attention outside the White House. China is known formally as the People's Republic of China.

Not that the Chinese are likely to take any offense at that.
