The former International Relations major in me got the warm fuzzies when Barack Obama correctly pronounced Pakistan during the debate the other night.  And the cynic in me worried that someone, somewhere, with a reader/viewership, was going to find a way to make correctly pronouncing foreign countries into something bad.

I wasn’t disappointed.  Correctly pronouncing foreign countries.  How elitist of him.

Oh, and via Think Progress, aparently Gen. David Petraeus uses the same “exotic pronounciation.”
