    Did Obama jab Putin or did Obama just show that he is an inclusive President who respects people for their abilities no matter what their sexual orientation is?

    Neither, it shows he wants to get into an ass kicking contest with a man that would slap the taste out of his mouth.

    Scary that I have more respect for the leader of Russia than I do the POTUS. Never thought I'd ever say that.

    Janet Napolitano? WTF, are they kidding? She'll be the blimp floating over the games.

    Didn't realize there was such a large group. Well, if they can't find a Gold Medal winner...

    But there are hundreds of past Olympians. Ultimately, OTHER criteria is ALWAYS going to go into who you choose for a delegation. Why you choose one or another. There's never going to be an instance of htem picking someone SINGULARLY based on what they accomplished in the olympics. Are you seriously suggesting that any selection of this type of thing is EVER done singularly based on "What they've done" and for no external reasonings? And if not, do you have issues with that...or do you only have issues with this since you have issues with homosexuality?

    I think you might be reading things into my argument with the "since you have issues with homosexuality." Things like race, religion, sexual orientation and others shouldn't be considered when it comes to such kind of appointments and delegations. If they were picked despite being gay that's fine, but if they was picked because they were gay or had that as a positive factor in the selection then that is wrong.

    If that happens, the world will condemn Russia (except for some backward theocracies that no one cares about).
