The Olympic Games are supposed to be apolitical.
I see by the papers (okay, the internet) that Hillary Clinton is calling on President Bush to boycott the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games "unless China improves its human rights record."
How is China supposed to "improve its human rights record" in three months?
My contempt for the Democratic party has reached new highs because of this. It was Democrat Carter who ordered a boycott of the Olympic games (with a pledge to revoke the passports of American athletes who attended) back in 1980. Now another high-ranking Dem with Presidential aspirations is calling for an Olypics-related political statement. I hereby pledge an oath to never, ever, ever, ever, ever support or vote for another Democrat candidate in any race, for any seat, anywhere.
Some selectively-edited stats:
It was Nixon who signed into law the bills banning cigarette advertising from radio and television. Meanwhile, Democrat Al "Envro-man" Gore's family was making the big bucks with their tobacco farm.
Democrat Johnson ramped up the war in Vietnam. Republican Nixon ended it.
Does anybody remember Democrat Al Gore's wife Tipper calling for censoring of rock-n-roll albums? A few years before that, Nixon held secret meetings with Elvis.
My new motto: real lefties vote right!
