We who enjoy watching the Olympics do so because we enjoy watching people who are the best in the world at what they do. We enjoy watching them strive for and achieve greatness. We enjoy watching their pure exuberant joy when realizing their lives' goals. We don't tune in to watch the personification of human failure.
Please stop showing us images of the Bushes. The worst president ever. The most unpopular president ever. We don't like him. The vast majority of Americans does not like him. He embodies and is responsible for so much that is wrong in this country and in the world. He is petty, stupid, mean, arrogant, and narcissistic, and he cares not a whit about all the suffering he causes. He is why our nation has no moral standing to criticize China for its violations of human rights. He is why our nation has no moral standing to criticize Russia for its invasion of Georgia. We don't want to see him at the Olympics. We don't want to see him falling asleep at the opening ceremonies. We don't want to see him cheering on the swim team or basketball team. We don't want to see him interviewed by Bob Costas. Many of us have spent years avoiding watching his insipid grin or listening to his vapid babble. We don't like him. The vast majority of Americans does not like him.
Dear NBC, please stop showing us the Bushes. Any of them. All of them. It is not charming to watch them enjoying themselves while the world is dying because of their misrule. We want to enjoy the Olympics. You're poisoning our enjoyment. Please let us enjoy the Olympics.
