The Xinhua News Agency on Monday called the American outcry over the made-in-China Olympic blazers "hypocritical" and "irresponsible."

It snarkily suggested that all U.S. lawmakers should perhaps be banned from "wearing anything or using any product" that was made abroad - a near-impossible restriction in today's globalized economy.

Xinhua singled out U.S. Senate majority leader Harry Reid, who had called for the uniforms to be piled up and burned.

"If there is anything that should be burned, it should really be the hypocrisy of the U.S. politics," it said.
