|No politics in the Olympics!|

|Yeah, but we didn't pay our athletes to miss the games that year.|
I say criticize them all for bringing politics into the games. If the ancient Greeks could stop a war in the middle to go to the games, we can stop being pissy about competing with nations whose politics we don't agree with. America was wrong to do so; the Soviet Union was wrong to do so; and this guy was wrong to do so. He would have made a much better point if he had wrestled and won--oh, but maybe he didn't have a chance in hell of winning. Well, he can always act like Cartman and say "Screw you guys--I'm going home."
And a double whammy to our glorious leader for suggesting that the Olympics were some kind of celebration of his preferred form of government. Every nation is welcome; every athlete is welcome; and an athlete who refuses to participate with "certain" countries should never have agreed to represent his country in the first place. Americans, too.
