Repeat After Me ~ It is Wholly, Totally, Completely Inappropriate to Politicize the Olympics!

Just ask Lyndsey Vonn or Shaun White who, by sheer coincidence, managed to strike the exact same pose as they spontaneously celebrated their respective gold medals yesterday. I've not noticed this particular pose before - but that is surely my inattentiveness. Who teaches the kids how to get ready for the Wheaties box cover? And, of course, flag waving jingoism is not political. Athletes are only political when they mention such unpleasantness as racism or human rights violations [*].
