I don't mean to nitpick the greatest Olympian ever, but instead of saying "I'm lost for words" in every other response he gives when asked to share his thoughts after every gold, can't he just give even the smallest of shout outs to God? Is he not Christian? No one is, for that matter. So disappointing. We really are heading into a post-Christian era. What a missed opportunity. Don't get me wrong, I could not be happier for Phelps and his golds for the US, but geez louise, deep in communist country, where freedom of speech and religion is suppressed, when the world is watching and listening to his every word....Nada, nothing. Just, "I'm lost for words, it's amazing...blah blah blah". Yawn.
I know, I'm a tough crowd. But I'm just disappointed. We still have millionaire professional athletes in pro leagues who give thanks to God on a regular basis in interviews here in the United States. why can't our young athletes do the same when it matters the most?

So with my principles firmly compromised of my own accord by becoming a rabid addict of watching the Olympics in Communist China, I do declare one simple wish.
My wish is that Michael Phelps, after winning gold after gold, at least once, immediately before or after the National Anthem, to reach in his pocket, retrieve a ginormous silver or gold Crucifix, point to it, kiss it, then display it to the camera.
Actually, this wish applies to any medal winner from any country, but Phelps doing it would be the Lottery win.
Pray for Georgia and their victims of the Russian onslaught.

Terrifying. Putin is public enemy #1, and a lying snake.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia: "'We no longer know the limits of the invading Russian army—Russia seems intent on overthrowing the democratically elected government of Georgia and occupying the country,' said Alexander Lomaia, the Secretary of the National Security Council. 'As a consequence, the National Security Council has just decided to bring the Georgian army to Tbilisi in order to defend the capital and prevent the fall of Georgia.'"
The Editors on Russia & Georgia on National Review Online: "Almost none of the officials in the South Ossetian government are locals. Most are high-ranking former KGB officials from other parts of Russia. But South Ossetia provides them with a safe haven in which they can launder money, run smuggling operations, traffic in women, divert official funds into their pockets, and wage small but useful wars. Those wars are the second function: They help to destabilize independent states, especially pro-Western states such as Georgia, already weakened by division. South Ossetian “forces” have been bombing Georgian villages at irregular intervals for years, but recently more intensively."

I told myself I would not watch any of the Olympics on principal, but I'm finding that impossible. I will not watch as a uninformed Joe Sixpack who couldn't possibly have the slightest inkling that China is a massive human rights violator, with religious and political dissidents wasting away in prisons and many times murdered for their beliefs, a crushing one child policy where if a woman attempts to have a second child, she could either submit to a forced abortion, or in some cases have her home burned to the ground.
So instead, I will watch as an informed citizen, hoping to catch protesters making their voices heard, and of course, I do hope to see the USA do exceedingly well.
But during the opening ceremony however, which in general I thought was well overdone, there was a moment where children from different provinces began carrying out the Chinese flag. They were all adorable in their tribal garb, but then they pass the flag on to Chinese soldiers who began marching the flag in true totalitarian fashion, knees locked, to the flagpole. Really tasteful China. Way to mix totalitarian communism with the Olympics. The display made me want to vomit.

Please do your part and boycott in any way you can the Olympics in Beijing. The communist government needs to be shamed and embarrassed into treating their people better, much better.
Use this opportunity to inform friends and family who are not up on China's vast human rights violations. In no way, not one, does China deserve to host the Olympics. The honor and legitimacy given to a country that hosts the Olympics is being grossly misapplied here. Do what you can.
Help bring freedom of speech and religion back to China.

MSM completely blacked out an affair John Edwards has been having, not to mention the love child with the mistress. Not surprised, but thought I'd help the MSM do their job. I guess that's all folks for the Veep spot.
Welcome to AnnCoulter.com: "According to the Enquirer, Edwards entered Hunter's hotel room around 9:45 p.m. and left at 2:40 in the morning. Seeing reporters as he left Hunter's room, Edwards sprinted to a hotel bathroom and blockaded himself in until hotel security came to rescue him. Even more suspicious, while Edwards was barricaded in the bathroom, no one reported hearing sounds of a blow dryer."
Can you hurry up and take the picture, got places to go, girls to bang.
If this was posted by anyone other than the McCain campaign itself, this would be so banned by now. The Obama Campai...ERRRR Youtube....ERRRR Gooogle have been banning and deleting anti-Obama left and right lately.
So if you support McCain or are opposed to Obama, get used to seeing this on Youtube.
