Keith Olbermann, as always, did a great job summing up the problem facing the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia this coming February, as Russia continues it growing crackdown on its gay and trans citizens.
Olbermann also quoted me, which was nice – specifically he quoted the headline of yesterday’s post: “Sochi Olympics to IOC: Make the mean gays stop!”
Of course, Olbermann quoted me as “a blogger.” So I guess I should have made this post about “a sportscaster” :)
Seriously, though, Keith really does a great job summarizing the problem the world, and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and especially the Olympics corporate sponsors face with the upcoming Sochi Olympics. It’s too bad we don’t see more of the political Keith Olbermann on TV any more – his commentaries really cannot be equaled.
As Olbermann notes, the IOC and the sponsors are now apparently very worried that their little gravy train – what he calls the “MasterCard Olympics” – might be in danger because of the mean gays comparing them to the “Master Race Olympics.”
And they should be.
